[arch-haskell] Checksum failures when building all packages

Right, sorry for not including more details.  So what I'm trying to do is
get all the needed packages for adding taffybar built.  The first I tried
with was HStringTemplate.  My last attempt at doing this looking a bit like

# just getting started, making sure I can build from a clean repo
$ git clone git://github.com/archhaskell/habs.git
$ cd habs
$ cblrepo sync
$ cblrepo pkgbuild --ghc-version 7.8.2-1 $(cblrepo build base|tail -n +2)
$ ./makeahpkg -c -- $(cblrepo build base | tail -n +2)

# that worked, no problem, so now I try adding HStringTemplate
$ cblrepo add HStringTemplate,0.7.3
$ cblrepo pkgbuild --ghc-version 7.8.2-1 HStringTemplate
$ ./makeahpkg -c -- HStringTemplate

This ended up giving me a checksum error on the haskell-mtl package.

If I instead do the last step with the `./makeahpkg -c -- $(cblrepo build
base | tail -n +2)` everything builds without a hitch.  At first I thought
I had to clean out all the previously built packages using `git clean -fd`,
but that turns out to not be the case.  Do I just need to include all the
HStringTemplate dependencies when trying to build it?
