true, but doesn't 6.8.2 itself have the same ABI as any other 6.8.2, not 
counting packages?

hmm.  different versions?  I think it might work out since I installed 
everything locally, if I just install the versions of the extra-libs 
that came with the 6.8.2 bindist...

Or do I have too great hopes in the reproducibility of ghc compilations?

(Not that I have any reason to try that.  I would probably just pull 
from the 6.8-darcs-branch to get your patch (and other post-6.8.2 fixes) 
and recompile everything anyway.)
