I’m not trying to talk you out of building everything on your own, which
is something where you learn a lot. Nevertheless I’m curious which kind
of problems you had when trying to use the Debian packages, and if they
are specific to the Debian packages?

My experience with ghc and lots of package from Debian, cabal-install
from Debian and then "cabal install"’ing (as a user!) everything not in
Debian is pretty good so far.
