didn’t seem to help just like that.

Probably because of "-no-user-package-db". Trying with "cabal install
--global" now.

7.4 is still the version in the latest Debian stable release, as well as
the almost latest Ubuntu LTS release (14.4 is still kinda new). But I
guess I can install ghc from a PPA on travis.

It doesn’t help with the process problem, though, that also affects 7.6.
