[Haskell-cafe] Stackage with GHC 7.8: build results

I'm happy to report that after about six months, enough upper bounds have
been corrected on Hackage that a Stackage build with GHC 7.8 can now
proceed. I've run a build with 7.8.0rc2, and have uploaded the build.log[1]
and the complete cabal output for each package[2]. The good news is that
most packages are building correctly, though there is still at least one
package deep in the dependency tree which does not build (pcre-light).

Here's a list of packages which failed to build, ignoring those which
couldn't be built due to broken dependencies:

* fpco-api (yes, I'm working on it)
* gitlib
* groundhog
* monad-peel
* parsestar
* pcre-light
* recursion-schemes
* statistics
* syb-extras
* thyme
* uniqueid
