Ticket #283 (closed bug: Invalid)
ghc-pkg ignores library dirs

Hi, I'm installing several packages in sequence. The first package specified /usr/local/lib in the library_dirs field. The .o file is built correctly. The next package depends on the first package. To reduce the size of the command line of any build with the second package, I filter out all flags that are already in the first package. Doing this, the .o file of the second package cannot be built since ghc-pkg does not include the library path of the first package when it searches for the .a file. I think that adding only those flags that are needed in addition to some other dependent package is a reasonable thing to do, so I would like to see ghc-pkg search on the library paths of all dependant packages. Thanks, Axel.
