Well, happstack-util is a dependency for the rest of the packages you
listed, so you might be better off focusing your efforts there.

It requires unix-compat to build. What does "cabal install
unix-compat" give you?

If that's what's breaking you can try "cabal install
unix-compat-" and then "cabal install happstack-util". Version appears to be the most recent version of unix-compat that
doesn't specify version bounds on the unix package, which is what
you're having trouble with.

If it works let us know.
