Hi Vasili,

have a look at all options of ghc-pkg. There is one command to hide a
package. Hidden packages will be shown by ghc-pkg list in parenthesis.
The second way to hide packages is passing a special option to ghc (you
can look it up in the ghc documentation or by running ./setup build
-v3). Probably here it's another reason: Maybe the build-depends fields
of the package are wrong. So just open the .cabal file and add it.
pay attention to
if flag(...)
  build-depends :
  build-depends :
so that you add it to the right one.

Hmm. It's superseded by the new time library found on hackage..
I hope that this message will help you.
