[Haskell-cafe] Hackage Build Failures

what is the best action to take if a package from hackage fails to build? Is
there a recommended/established common way to deal with build
failures/runtime bugs etc.?

For example:

cetin at linux-d312:~/Links/Elite/ac> cabal install wired
Resolving dependencies...
Downloading Wired-0.1.1...
Configuring Wired-0.1.1...
Preprocessing library Wired-0.1.1...
Building Wired-0.1.1...
[ 1 of 21] Compiling Data.Hardware.Internal ( Data/Hardware/Internal.hs,
dist/build/Data/Hardware/Internal.o )

    Ambiguous occurrence `><'
    It could refer to either `Data.Hardware.Internal.><', defined at
                          or `Test.QuickCheck.><', imported from
Test.QuickCheck at Data/Hardware/Internal.hs:11:0-21
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
Wired-0.1.1 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
