Hi Adam, 

I upgraded to ghc version 7.10.2 — that seems to have fixed the problem.

Yes, I’m using a sandbox, although made the mistake of not using --only-dependencies when I did $ cabal install hakyll, and it’s been 20+ minutes, and my CPU is still grinding away.  ;)

It’s nothing like Python pip so far, but I’m sure there are good reasons why (e.g., need to compile every dependency)

Thanks again
