For a *nix binary distribution you can generate the shell wrapper when
installing, like we do for GHC.
For Windows you could either use a registry entry (which might cause
problems if you want to have multiple copies installed) or have a config
file in the same place as the binary.
Of course, if haddock is just bundled with ghc then we don't have to
worry about finding GHC, as we're installing them both together. And
Windows won't need a config file, as it is installed in the same place
as GHC, so it knows where its libdir is.
