Moritz Angerman has recently been working on enabling relocatable builds of GHC in Hadrian. This will enable a user to extract a bindist anywhere in their file system and expect it to work. Moreover, it should simplify our installation procedure.

This ticket won't be resolved in 8.4; remilestoning for 8.6. Do holler if you are affected by this or would otherwise like to work on it.

This actually (hopefully) will make it for 8.4. Alp is currently working on this.
