OK, I see.

Trying to self-upgrade stack on testing from the available version gives
me a lot of errors similar to the following one:
/usr/bin/ld: /home/user/.stack/programs/x86_64-linux/ghc-7.10.3/lib/ghc-7.10.3/rts/libCffi.a(closures.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
This seems to be a known problem
I will see if I manage to fix it.
