cabal-install cannot install base; it is and must be part of the compiler.
The error does not say that base is missing, it says that base is present
but broken (stat() is a libc function, not part of base).

The recommendation to check with #gentoo-haskell, however, is a good idea;
it's clearly a problem with the Gentoo package.
