Thanks - perhaps the problem was that I'd installed ghc6 directly
instead of putting it into my local repo along with the libraries.
However after putting the ghc6 package into my repo and uninstalling it
(so I can re-install it properly from the beginning) I'm now stumped by
another problem: where to find the GPG key needed to authenticate the
packages? I can't find any info on the website about where to
find the key or what command to use to tell apt about it. Do you know
where the GPG key for the repo can be found?
I've spent hours googling with no luck.

Thanks, Brian.
