I tried building a few of these packages, and my results mostly agree.
dataenc 0.11 works for me.
hslogger 1.0.5 works for me (in fact all of the versions on hackage seem to
support split base).

This is explicitly marked as a compatibility package for old GHC versions --
base<2 is intentional.

Both of these build and run here. I don't understand why they should have
"extra-libraries: glut", don't the extra-libraries belong in the GLUT package

Builds fine here. However, the tests should not build for a Hackage release,
I'll look into this.
