You can find a list of everything a port will install
in the ports package list file, pkg-plist, and search
for entries beginning with "bin/" which typically are
the binaries.

A similar information can be obtained from the package
database, /var/db/pkg/<name>/+CONTENTS; in this file,
als search for lines beginning with "bin/" to find
the binaries.

However, I don't see a port "haskell-platform" on my
systems (ports collection updated few days ago).
