I think it never actually tries to build the Haddock docs for the actual
package of interest because its dependencies failed to build.

Here's the GLFW-b build log:

Running Haddock for bindings-DSL-1.0.16...
Running Haddock for th-lift-0.5.5...
* Missing C library: Xxf86vm

These messages are from the build of bindings-GLFW, a dependency of
GLFW-b. Due to the missing library, bindings-GLFW's build fails. So
GLFW-b's does too.

I guess I think the build failure should be noted, but that Hackage
should go on and build the docs anyway.
