Better configuration of backend

Description

The backend configuration isn't perfect:

  • Start from a ghc on unix without terminfo or Win32 installed
  • cabal install from inside the haskeline repo directory
  • Cabal will complain that Win32 can't be built.

  • priority changed from major to minor

It's not quite as bad as I thought...I just needed to cabal update so that cabal would see that terminfo-0.2.1 was available.

But this does demonstrate the fragility of the current config system.

  * Choose a backend configuration based on the OS, rather than a configuration flag.

Until #1 is implemented, that seems like the right way to do things.
