mtl- is now a copy of what monads-fd was, and monads-fd is now
a deprecated stub re-exporting mtl-  So you'll want to migrate
to transformers/mtl-2.

But in your case, on line 578 of src/Happstack/Server/SimpleHTTP.hs:

    getFilter     m = WebT $ ErrorT $ fmap lft $ getFilter (runErrorT $ unWebT m)

If you replace fmap with liftM, it will build with both old and new
versions of the mtl package.
