Imho the prof packages do not hurt, but in case the documentation is not big,
there is no need to add it to a seperate doc subpackage. Nevertheless I would
prefer to use %bcond_without or %bcond_with macros to make it possible to
easily define whether or not to build the subpackages on the rpmbuild

Here is a patch:

Btw. is there any need to require a certain version of ghc except for making
sure that the pkg_libdir exists, i.e. would it be possible to just use a
Requires: ghc, given that one can use some spec-fu to automatically build the
pkg_libdir path and Requires from the ghc version that was used to build the
rpm? Iirc it was only required in previous Fedora releases, to allow parallel
installation of different ghc version, which is not supported anymore.
