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?
