No. That can't work (at least with GHC). The base package is one of the
packages that the compiler was built with, it is impossible to replace it
and have a working compiler (again, GHC, for other compilers it might be
possible, but I don't think it currently is for any).
If you want a compiler with bae-18.104.22.168, install a compiler that was built
with it (ghc-7.0.*).
Other packages you cannot replace are process, directory, array,
containers, integer-(gmp|simple), ghc, ghc-prim, ..., basically everything
that comes with a vanilla ghc install (except Cabal, you can install a
different version of Cabal without breaking things, afaik).
