I agree that ghc-clang-wrapper can cause problems and GHC should
provide its own CPP. But have you ever experienced such problems

I have been using Mavericks just after it was released, and using both
GHC 7.6.3 and GHC 7.8 (head in the past) with ghc-clang-wrapper/new
alex/new happy. I have not experienced such problems so far.
