As far as I know, the build system will only install those packages that
are required for base, haskell98 and ghc (but not dph) packages, with
the idea that users can install any other packages without breaking
those core libraries. You can install everything using

make install InstallExtraPackages=YES

(you can also define InstallExtraPackages in ghc.mk)
