Compiling Haskell

Since I need 6.10 which is not in Debian, it might be a good idea to
try to figure out how to compile from source.

Nope.. 6.10 is in unstable.
Next: cabal -> it's in debian as `cabal-install'

Anyways, for non-root access, a binary install is possible using:

Haskell platform requires 6.10.4 however:

Anyways, it fails on glut (-lglut32 ??).  I'm not going to bother with that now.

Next attempt: follow the installation guide of Xmonad, after
installing ghc 6.10.4 from the binary package.  This installs
cabal-install first.
