To be honest I'd not bother. You already have the version of the process
package that came with ghc and there are no new releases that you need.
That's why nobody else noticed the problem, because nobody needs to
install this package, because it comes with ghc.

If you really want to re-install it anyway then you could use the darcs
version that goes with the ghc-6.8.x branch:


Obviously in principle the version on hackage should have worked. You'll
be glad to know that hackage now checks that packages that use
build-type Configure do indeed actually have a ./configure file, so this
particular error cannot be repeated.
