In that case, we'll need to make a few modifications.

1) the macros should be prefixed with ghc, not cabal or haskell
2) library packages should be prefixed with ghc-, not haskell-

The reasoning is that if someone asks for nhc support, i would rather just have
them do their own nhc packages in a similar manner.  It seems the easiest for
now, rather than having to rename haskell-* packages to ghc-* later.

Also, I would like to ask that you backport the macros to everything, because
they are definitely needed in order to build packages.  Otherwise, there is no
way we can build stuff on Koji boxes running on Fedora 9 or other versions.

To put this in perspective, the current workflow is to clean out mock, then
copyin the macros.  This is not doable with Koji.  It's a pain in the you know
what for most users.
