[Haskell-beginners] Stack could not find libHStransformers

What version of Stack are you using (stack --version), and how did you
install Stack and GHC?

It looks like you're using a system-wide GHC installation, which (for
reasons like this) we by default no longer use by default in recent Stack

Upgrading to the latest Stack (via `stack upgrade` or following the
instructions at [1]) will probably solve the problem.
