New issue 271 by k04jg02: Setup.lhs

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Download xmonad, darcs or tarball
2. Run: runhaskell Setup.lhs --user --prefix=~
3. Build and install

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect xmonad to install into my home folder. Instead it creates a folder
called '~' in the source folder and installs there.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Ubuntu 8.10, xmonad from darcs

Please provide any additional information below.
I realize that this probably isn't an xmonad specific issue, but I'm not
haskell savvy enough to know who to report it to instead (GHC?). I wouldn't
bother reporting this if it weren't very difficult to figure out what's
wrong -- configure/build/install complete without any errors, but then
xmonad isn't installed. It wasn't until I tried to install contrib and it
complained that StackSet was missing ("XMonad not installed in that folder
would be more helpful by the way") that I eventually figured this out.

If this error is due to a module from XMonadContrib, please tag this issue
with 'Component-Contrib' below.
