Running GHC 7.10.2 on Ubuntu 18.04 ?

This is likely caused by an old GHC bug that interacts poorly with newer
version of binutils (I can't remember the exact bug, unfortunately).

I personally use hvr's Ubuntu PPA [1] whenever installing GHC on Ubuntu.
This PPA backports patches to old versions of GHC to keep them working with
newer versions of binutils, and I can confirm that the version of GHC
7.10.2 offered from here works well with Ubuntu 18.04.
