Your datapacker depends on MissingH 1.0.1 which, although on hackage,
fails to build with GHC 6.8.2.  (It may build with earlier versions,
but I haven't tried.)

It says:

[41 of 48] Compiling System.IO.Binary ( src/System/IO/Binary.hs,
dist/build/System/IO/Binary.o )

    Illegal signature in pattern: ForeignPtr Word8
        Use -XPatternSignatures to permit it

    Illegal signature in pattern: ForeignPtr CChar
        Use -XPatternSignatures to permit it

Hackage confirms this build failure:
