the deleting .ghc/ solves that problem, but another problem i've had is that
when trying to build gtk2hs, I'm unable to find the package.conf file that
apparently needs to be modfied, and only  a package.conf.d  folder.... are
these somehow the same thing or where is it hidden/what am i overlooking?
