[arch-haskell] More GHC/GMP woes

Version 6.12.1-3.1 of ghc still has a hidden dependency on gmp, even
though it's built with integer-simple.

> %  pacman -Qo /usr/lib/ghc-6.12.1/unlit
> /usr/lib/ghc-6.12.1/unlit is owned by ghc 6.12.1-3.1
> %  ldd /usr/lib/ghc-6.12.1/unlit| grep not\ found
> libgmp.so.3 => not found

This version of ghc will build simple packages, but will fail when
trying to rebuild ghc itself.

I suppose there's some sort of bug in the GHC makefile that cause libgmp
to be linked against libgmp whatever integer library is in use?
