It turned out that there was a stale version of 'array' lurking in the 
ghc package db.  In spite of reinstalling ghc it did not go away until I 
unregistered it.  I think it was persisting because re-installing ghc 
simply unpacked over the old directory leaving that pre-existing file 

'ghc-pkg check' shows no errors and I have successfully installed pandoc 
and some other packages.
