This patch should fix the issue if it is what I think it is. But the patch is not in a release yet :-/


One workaround is suggested on an associated ticket: https://github.com/commercialhaskell/stack/issues/1714

Another workaround as I understand it is to just invoke stack always with --no-system-ghc for now.

As to where to turn for help, I think the usual sources all would work — irc, slack, mailinglists (such as cafe — look, it worked!), stackoverflow, etc.

Hope this helps,
