In the GHC package in ArchHaskell we simply patch up the source:

check() {
    cd ghc-${pkgver}

    # python2 rename
    sed -e 's/PYTHON = python/&2/' -i testsuite/mk/boilerplate.mk
    sed -e 's_#!/usr/bin/env python_&2_' -i testsuite/timeout/calibrate testsuite/timeout/timeout.py

    make THREADS=9 test

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