refined as below. This "one-shot install" runs without any errors. I
wouldn't expect this to necessarily continue to work, as feisty is
"unstable". (A little hazy on what that means)

The troubles are indeed all connected to gtk.

apt-cache search libghc6 | ghc -e '
  -- do not install any of the following
  let exclude_strings = ["ghc6-hopengl",
      matches_any x xs = any (x==) xs
      matches_no_exclude_strings x = not $ matches_any x exclude_strings
      column1 l = head $ words l
    interact $
        . filter matches_no_exclude_strings
        . map column1
      . lines
' \
| xargs apt-get -y install -o APT::Cache-Limit=25165824

# xargs --max-lines=1 can be helpful for debugging if anything goes
wrong in the above.
