Initial ghc-6.12 + hackage build results

I've tried building 1324 out of the ~1700 packages from hackage using
ghc-6.10.4 and ghc-6.12.0. This is the subset of packages that I could
build in one go.
Compared to the subset that I could build with ghc-6.10.4, I had to
chuck out 125 packages because their build dependency constraints
precluded them from building with ghc-6.12.
Of the remaining 1324 packages, 113 packages that built OK previously
now do not build.
Amongst that 113, the ones that cause most knock-on failures are:
packedstring fails because it needs base 4, but only says
"build-depends: base", so cabal uses its compatibility tricks and builds
it against base 3. It should specify "build-depends: base == 4.*".
I need to investigate MissingH further. It failed because a dependency
of its non-buildable test program was not found. That should not have
been a problem.
syb-with-class has type errors, I'm guessing due to changes in
uvector does not compile because of the changes in GHC's Handle
stringtable-atom now fails with a type error for reasons I don't quite
Occurs check: cannot construct the infinite type: a = (Int, a)
When generalising the type(s) for `findMax'
Perhaps some change in a containers function?
bindings-common and c2hs fail because the CLDouble FFI type has been
binary-strict fails because the export of Control.Applicative.many now
clashes with a local definition.
base64-string fails because it sets -Werror in it's .cabal file (a
practise which has been banned for some time for just this reason).
Of the remaining 113:
2 failed at the configure step:
MissingH-184.108.40.206 -- this needs investigation, I smell a cabal bug

to accidentally pick up ghc's config.h) this happens because the package
needs to run ./configure but does not say so.

The remaining 59 are knock-on failures, ie packages that depended on one
of the failed packages.
