On this note, when removing the profiling options, the leksah package
still fails to build due to this error
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/656. It probably has
something to do with the fact that I had to install haddock through
cabal2arch to build leksah (and its components) in the first place due
to GHC only providing a haskell binary (and there being no haddock
package on AUR)

Im not going to add a comment to the ticket above (yet) because I am not
sure if its an issue due to me installing haddock as I have done
