Turns out if you do that you end up with hs-mtl and friends which will
conflict with yesod's dependencies. You'll probably have to do an install
(apparently there are no binary builds for non-Mavericks, so if you need
that then you have a problem :/ )

Or you can remove the MacPorts-based ghc stuff and do an install as
recommended by and make certain it can't find any
MacPorts-installed library because that will lead to libiconv conflicts.

Apparently the yesod/Stackage folks think this insanity is a good thing.
