Description (last modified by errge)
GHC 7.8.1-rc2 installs the xhtml library, but doesn't export it, i.e. it's completely invisible to users. Is there a particular reason why this setup is necessary?
If GHC needs that library internally anywhere, would it be possible to link it statically and *not* install it?
Or, if that's not possible, if the library needs to be installed, please make it visible to users.
See comment 17 for a discussion on why this is causing problems for distribution vendors.
