I tried to build the release from this script [1] which works
straightfully for GHC 8.2.2 on debian jessie.
1) There's a minor glitch showing:
but the version of the file in the download area is

2) GHC and cabal library installed successfully whereas cabal-install

Linking Setup ...
Configuring HTTP-4000.3.7...
