Yes, you can upload the package that builds on merulo as you obviously
tested it quite well.
It is possible thqt there is something wrong with the buildd, though it
would be good to see if the haskell packages compile ok with the
compiler you built on merulo, so please upload and we could try to
rebuild ghc6 on the buildd afterwards.
