Ticket #2829 (closed bug: worksforme)

This bug is present in at least ghc 6.8.2 and ghc 6.10.1. According to the documentation:
One should be able to specify an environment variable like GHC_PACKAGE_PATH=$HOME/foo: in order to add the file foo to the search path. Instead, the search path is completely replaced--which seems unlikely to be the desired behavior, besides being contrary to the documentation.
This feature works fine, however, in ghc 6.6.1.
