Installing GHC on a shared server requires a minimal footprint, without GHCi, profiling, debugging, documentation, or anything else not needed for regular building and installing. And anything stripable should be striped, if it isn't already.

It would be great if the configuration script would support a --minimal option.

And even better if all the *dir variables in the bin scripts could use relative paths, or an environment variable. (haddock and hpc obviously won't be needed either)
