The problem seems to be that those files were not part of any package,
but now are in ghc.

This is a problem with ghc-pkg version. For previous version of ghc I had to do:

  $ pacman -Rcs ghc

then reinstall ghc and needed haskell-* packages. I think you'll want
to remove the offending files before installing ghc again. I hope this
solve the problem.
