dh_haskell_extra_depends - generate the extra-depends file in Haskell packages
] [ --exclude=package

dh_haskell_extra_depends is a debhelper program that helps with calculating
dependencies for building Haskell libraries.
Since Haskell libraries are statically linked, packagers that use Haskell
libraries cannot rely on the fact that dynamical libraries are dependencies of
their packages to be sure that possible runtime data packages are installed at
execution time. The extra dependencies mechanism allows libraries to declare
some packages that are to be added to the dependency list of each package that
uses them to build.
This script scans the Haskell dependencies and harvest extra dependencies
information, putting them in the file debian/extra-depends, which is later
used by dh_haskell_depends to be included in the substvars file.
None, as far as we know. :-)
