Unfortunately the hsc2hs instance is specific to one ghc version. You've
presumably got ghc-6.8.3 and ghc-6.10.1 installed. You're building stuff
using ghc-6.8.3 but the hsc2hs from ghc-6.10.1 and so hsc2hs is getting
passed the wrong include paths. If you use the hsc2hs from the ghc-6.8.3
installation then it should work.

We should look into making it more independent of the ghc version.
