Updating Leksah (or packaging GHCJS)


So now I'm tackling with Leksah, which is a monster as Joachim justly said.

I've already prepared most of needed Hackage debs missing in Debian
sid, but seems the recent Leksah (I've been using, and was out yesterday) depends on ghcjs-dom, which in turn
depends on ghcjs-base.  Once upon a time it was possible to build
Leksah without ghcjs-* since a build flag can effectively kill those
dependency, but seems the trick doesn't work anymore.  Thus I tried to
package ghcjs-base, but I couldn't figure out how it can be built
alone without the entire GHCJS.

So now I became "interested" in GHCJS, tried to build ghcjs based on
ghcjs-debian (https://github.com/ddssff/ghcjs-debian), but seems it
requires ghcjs *before* building it ;-<  So I'm in dead stuck.  Any
help?  I think it's really nice to have Leksah and GHCJS in Debian as
packages, not via cabal.
