Chances are the auther DIDN'T go crazy :-)

It's a common practice to hide all packages, and then only bring the
ones needed into visibility.  I doubt that Gtk2hs is completely self
contained, so somewhere in there is the directives that makes the
needed packages visible again.  Just add array and you should be past
this particular hurdle.
