Package: haskell-devscripts
Severity: wishlist

I was building some code of my own that ended up complaining

    Could not find module `Language.Haskell.Interpreter'
    Perhaps you haven't installed the "dyn" libraries for package `hint-'?
    Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.

Online I found a suggestion for that, which is to rebuild everything
with --enable-shared.  Which works, if I use cabal to manage packages,
but it would be nice if the Debian packages supported that as well.
It seems that this could be doable by just putting --enable-shared in
the right place, but it would have to be done package by package from
the bottom up.  Thoughts?
