#19: The platform directory should be relocatable
 Reporter:  refold             |        Owner:  refold  
     Type:  enhancement        |       Status:  closed  
 Priority:  minor              |    Milestone:  2009.2.1
Component:  Windows installer  |   Resolution:  fixed

Old description:

> Fixed in the 2009.2.1 isntaller.

New description:

 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.
