A manual run of haddock with the --read-interface shows the same problem,
so it's not connected to Cabal.  I think the problem is that base-2.0
contains Data.FunctorM, so functorm ought to depend on a later version
of base (which is of course not in HackageDB, but at least then it would
be correct).
