I don't have a concrete solution for your problem, but instead of fighting
with Emacs packages and customizations directly, I would *highly* recommend
Spacemacs (http://spacemacs.org/).After using and customizing Emacs for
several decades, I switched to Spacemacs some months ago and never looked
back. Getting a coherent set of packages for a task, and getting those
packages to actually work together requires a non-trivial amount of
configuration fiddling. This is what Spacemacs does for you, plus an easy
way to update.

Having said that, Spacemacs' Haskell layer works perfectly for me, perhaps
you can give it a try. Another hint: Use stack/stackage instead of fiddling
around with GHC installations, Cabal, sandboxes etc. for yourself.
