This is not specific to GHC. Arch Linux, being a bleeding-edge Linux
distribution, tends to prefer newer versions of software over more stable
versions of software. I doubt that facet of Arch Linux will ever change, so
perhaps you should reevaluate your choice of Linux distribution or avoid
pacman/package updates for software whose stability and predictability is
critical to you.
