as already mentioned for GHC >= 7.2 the package `haskell98' conflicts
with the `base' package. Thus when patching jhc for such a GHC version
seems to amount to use only one of them. Would it be okay to use
`base' alone for jhc (since imho jhc is less Haskell 98 compliant
than, for instance, DrIFT)?
