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
http://hackage.haskell.org/package/satchmo
(sources at https://github.com/jwaldmann/satchmo)

depends on minisat-haskell-bindings (in Haskell),
minisat-c-bindings (in C), and minisat (C++),
all from https://github.com/niklasso/

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)?
