I use hackage quite a bit, though admittedly it's only been with gcc
6.8.2. However, the code is open source; I don't imagine that updating
hackage libraries would be any worse than many of the other library
updates, bugfixes and so on I've had to do over the years.
Again, I'm different; I keep source copies of most hackage libraries
in my build framework for each application, and I can very easily keep

You'd best stick to what you know about; I've been working on and
helping to release major pieces of open source software (e.g., NetBSD)
for fifteen years now, and have had plenty of packages for which I was
the sole or primary maintainer.
The basic issue here, I think, is that you're probably just using
inferior build systems, and so some things are harder for you than they
are for me. You probably won't believe that, because of course everybody
thinks that whatever they are currently doing is pretty much the best
possible way there is to do it.
