You can check the filelists %{name}*.files in
the build directory.  They are automatically generated
by macros in macros.ghc.

Agreed this is unfortunate but currently ghc assumes and requires
the presence of the static library so they can't be subpackaged yet.
I hope this will change in the future.  (Actually ghc's shared
library support is still considered somewhat experimental
but seems to work well - I don't know if any other distro which
has actually adopted them yet though.)  The Haskell Guidelines
should state this clearly, though they were written but ghc-6.12
which introduced shared lib support on linux.


Yes, the packaging guidelines need a refresh too.

Running cabal2spec-diff on the tarball should show you
how the package differences from the standard Haskell templates.
