Rajesh, are any of those executables necessary at all?  Are they needed for
testing the package itself after being built?  Are they necessary for testing
packages that depend on them?

In any case, I think you should name the spec file 'ghc-crypto.spec' and iclude
a comment stating the exception.  There's no need to revise the guidelines for
something like this.  Secondly, if the executables are not needed once the
package has been built, note that there is a %test section in the RPM spec that
is not often used.  Feel free to take advantage of this.

If they are needed for dependencies, then just spit out a -devel package,
comment why it's needed, and comment on it in the review as well.

As for the makefile business, The macros are based on bryan's work.
