HSQL is currently unmaintained. Frederik Eaton was considering taking it
over: http://www.nabble.com/HSQL-defunct--td14978532.html

Gentoo has a fix:
The code in src_unpack() is replacing the Setup.hs with a default copy
and then adding 'extra-libraries: sqlite3' to the .cabal file. Pretty
straightforward. This does assume that you have sqlite3 installed in the
default global location.

You may also like to consider alternatives like HDBC-sqlite3.
