    Add `--dynlibdir` · d2da6558

    `--dynlibdir` indicates the directory in which dynamic libraries
    are installed. By default this setting is equal to:
    
    `$libdir/$abi`
    
    The static libraries will still end up in:
    
    `$libdir/$libsubdir`
    
    With `$libsubdir/$abi` as the default directory for dynamic
    libraries, dynamic libraries will by default end up in a
    single shared directory (per package database). This has the
    potential to reduce start-up times for dynamically linked
    executable as only one RPATH per package database will be
    needed.
    
    This commit uses the functionality defined in
    
    https://phabricator.haskell.org/D2611
    
    to tell GHC's > 8.0.1 package database that dynamic libraries
    are copied to the directories mentioned in the
    
    `dynamic-library-dirs`
    
    field.
