Point is that in this particular case two different versions of mtl are
being pulled in the compilation by different dependencies. Plus,
transformers 0.2.* is selected as well.
Cabal reasons along the following lines:
one dependency is hledger 0.13, which is built against the mtl 1.x.
another dependency is Chart, which is built against transformers 0.2.x
Now instances from transformers conflict with those from mtl 1.x, when you
are building hledger-chart
Plus, when you are rebuilding hledger-0.13 from scratch, they start to
conflict as well.
Add in the mix deficiency of 6.12.1 which is sometimes picks up wrong
version of packages (or so I remember), and all the hell breaks loose.
The only solution for me was to bump mtl to 2.x, rebuild everything
depending on mtl, and something pulled in newer "process" in the process,
which caused another wave of rebuilds.
With 6.12.3 or 7.0.1 everything is way easier (as expected) :)
