I've worked around this by manually checking out the 'ghc-7.8' branch of
various submodules until I got it to work (I think the ones I needed to
change were dph, haskell98, haskell2010, template-haskell, and haddock,
but I'm not sure). It seems the `ghc-7.8.3-release` tag is in a horrible
shape in terms of reproducable building of imported repos. Is anyone
looking into fixing this?
