I got annoied with specifying:
./setup configure --with-compiler=ghc-6.5.20060724 --with-hc-pkg=ghc-pkg-6.5.20060724
So the first patch makes it guess better about so that this works:
./setup configure --with-compiler=ghc-6.5.20060724
The second patch is just a trivial simplification. That bit
should probably use pipes rather than outputting to a file
and then reading the file.
I didn't want to just push these changes, so can someone else
give them a quick look over and commit. Cheers.

* Be cleverer about guessing hc-pkg name and location.
So it now works if you say:
./setup configure --with-compiler=ghc-6.5
ie specifying a path-relative name rather than an absolute path.
We then look for hc-pkg in the same dir as where we found the compiler.
If the compiler appears to have a version suffix then we additionally
and preferentially look for hc-pkg with that same version suffix.
(I'm not sure that bit works if you've got a .exe suffix, perhaps a
windows person could try it / take a look)

* Use slightly simpler way of getting GHC version.
ghc has supported --numeric-version for ages.
