Hmmm, it looks like the install paths are hardwired in
hptool/src/OS/Internal.hs. Do I see this correctly? If yes, that's a
bit unfortunate, an additional parameter to or an
environment variable would be nice. Furthermore, the executables are
scattered around:


Even if one copies this to /usr/local, extending the PATH would be
tiresome. Is this intended or is a common bin directory below
usr/local/haskell-platform/2014.2.0.0 missing? The whole layout below
build/target is somehow un-Linux-esque (it's basically structured the
Windows way): Normal packages put their binaries below /usr/bin, their
libs below /usr/lib, their docs below /usr/share/doc etc. How are
other packagers on this list handling this?
