I've pushed a modified commit that generates the .desktop files for

This Xmonad's mod-q does not work as expected, but that isn't a problem
if you like the default configuration ;).  Anyhow, some more work will
need to be done to support reconfiguration.  I had thought
GHC_PACKAGE_PATH would do what we need, but it doesn't seem to do what
I had thought.  Perhaps creating a custom package database for xmonad
to use would work.

I believe mod-q works fine for me with the following set:

    export GHC_PACKAGE_PATH=$profile/lib/ghc-7.8.4/package.conf.d/:

Note the trailing colon. (I haven't yet tried this out with the new
version you just pushed, so it's very possible this doesn't help.)

About creating custom package databases: my xmonad.hs imports packages
other than xmonad and xmonad-contrib, so my GHC_PACKAGE_PATH would in
that case still need to contain the $profile's package database.
