[Haskell-cafe] Hint & Cabal Install weirdness.

I'm attempting to install hint, I started by doing:
cabal install hint
and it gives me the following error:
cabal: dependencies conflict: ghc-6.10.1 requires process ==126.96.36.199 however
process-188.8.131.52 was excluded because ghc-6.10.1 requires process ==184.108.40.206
So I decided to try installing it via darcs, expecting to either have it
work, or boil it down to one or two dependencies that were causing the
problem, my hunch was right, it boils down to the ghc-mtl package,
leading to the same error as above. My question is, how can I fix this?
Doing a ghc-pkg hide on either process package breaks Cabal and Haddock
(among others) according to the error message, and even after that
happens, cabal complains about needing ghc >= 6.6 (or 6.8, depending on
which package I disable), even though I have ghc 6.10.
Detailed system info follows, help me haskell-cafe-kenobi(s), you're
(all) my only hope(s)!
Arch Linux: uname -a gives:
Linux Erdos 2.6.28-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Feb 2 22:22:59 UTC 2009 i686
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 3.06GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
ghc --version gives:
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.10.1
cabal-install version 0.6.0
using version 220.127.116.11 of the Cabal library
