Yes: I forgot :-)

I tried several simple programs, and found out that libxrandr-dev was
needed, but libglfw-dev wasn't needed at all. This seemed strange, so
after a bit of investigation turns out that GLFW has a partial copy of
libglfw and instead of using the system's library it was linking
statically to this copy.

The cabal file has a flag for dynamic linking that uses the system's
library instead. I changed it manually, rebuilt and it worked as

So, I need to be able to pass --flags=dynamic to cabal configure in
order for the package to link against the system's libglfw. What's the
incantation in debian/rules for that to happen?
