how to release (on hackage) a package that needs foreign libs?

What is the recommended approach for publishing (on hackage)
a package that depends on external libraries?

In my case, the current version of
(sources at

depends on minisat-haskell-bindings (in Haskell),
minisat-c-bindings (in C), and minisat (C++),
all from

My guess is that this would require that the external libraries
are packaged (deb, rpm?), then hackage gods install them,
and only then, my package will be built (and docs will be shown)?
