References to the doc directory is often kept in the
lib/ghc-7.8.4/package.d/<package>.conf (or similar) file, in the
'haddock-interfaces' and 'haddock-html' fields.  We may be able to just
scrub the references, but it may break some user expectations about
using 'ghc-pkg' to find the location of documentation for a library.
