We've been through it off-list. It's failing when calling ghc for the
first time but we cannot track down why.

To help in future cases I've changed the logging of calling external
programs slightly so that at the maximum verbosity level we now report
the error code that the process returned if it was non-0. That'll help
us confirm if it really was the external process failing or if it failed
sometime after that but before the next log message.
