I forgot to mention that I was running the binary package -- didn't bother to
build ghc from source. Because the binary package relies on libedit.so.0 and
Debian only comes with libedit2, I created a symbolic link for libedit.so.0
pointing to libedit.so.2. Could that be a problem for Emacs? But the libedit
backend works fine when running ghci from a command line.
