[arch-haskell] Upgrade to 7.4.2

I've been working on upgrading [haskell] to Ghc 7.4.2 for a few days
now.  So far no luck :(

The build always fails on creating documentation.  Yesterday I
resorted to taking the source package from [extra], which is known to
build fine... but still it failed on generating the docs.  I now
suspect this is due to the limited memory available on the machine I
use to build (1.5GB).

For the moment I've given up on building Ghc especially for use in
[haskell].  In order to move on I'll instead make use of Ghc out of
[extra].  If anyone has any objections to that, then please speak up.

Perl is another example of filling a tiny, short-term need, and then
being a real problem in the longer term.
