I've also realised that ghc first FTBFS at version 7.4.2 on Alpha. I've got
the unstable version (7.4.1-4) currently rebuilding to verify that it still
builds successfully, and if it does then we know that the problem was
introduced between 7.4.1 and 7.4.2.

uninstallable and can stay in that state until we get a working ghc in
