it might be of interest to know that the Nix package manager [1] offers that
functionality too, but it can install such Haskell environments on all Linux
variants and on MacOS X without requiring superuser privileges. BSD Unices
probably work as well, but aren't tested as much as Linux/Darwin platforms,
because there seems to be little demand for those.

Take care,
