It is possible and desirable to manage haskell packages with pacman on Arch
It is just not perfect yet - the arch-haskell project needs your help.

(For me personally, using the [haskell] and [haskell-extra] repositories
has worked out well so far, and it's nice knowing everything is managed
properly by pacman.)
