I added PPAs for GHC 7.6.3 recently.  Feel free to use:

    sudo apt-get --purge remove ghc
    sudo apt-get --purge remove cabal-install
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:typeful/ghc-7.6.3
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:typeful/cabal-install
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ghc cabal-install

This assumes that you only want to install GHC and cabal-install with
apt and everything else from Hackage.
