I wonder if we should get some lintian help here.

Maybe we could request lintian warnings for any libghc6-*-prof packages
that don't depend on the corresponding libghc6-*-dev package.

While we're at it, we might might as well ask them to remove the warning:

  libghc6-*-prof: debian-changelog-file-is-a-symlink

when the -prof package does indeed depend on the -dev package.

If people agree with these ideas I'm willing to chase them through
the process of getting them added to lintian.
