That should not be random (which went the other way, from GHC to a
package of its own), but deepseq.
It seems that upstream recommends to take this path, so I’ll request
removal of the package soon.
@DHG: This means that the version constraint on the libghc-binary-*
dependencies need to be removed, as ghc provides libghc-binary-dev, but
such provides never carry a version number in Debian. The build
dependency itself can stay; it doesn't hurt and will prevent failed
builds if some future GHC packages stops exposing binary.
