#19: The platform directory should be relocatable
 Reporter:  refold       |       Owner:  refold  
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  minor        |   Milestone:  2009.2.1
Component:  Platform     |    Keywords:          
 The Windows installer currently writes the absolute path to the
 "extralibs" directory to package.conf. It should use a path relative to
 the GHC installation directory instead to make the Haskell Platform
 directory relocatable.

 In general, it would be also nice if cabal-install didn't write absolute
 paths to package.conf.
