Some library you use was built against mtl-1, I think, so you inherit that

Rebuild the libraries that depend on mtl against mtl-2.
$ ghc-pkg unregister mtl-220.127.116.11
should tell you which packages are affected, unregister those first (or
later after unregistering mtl-18.104.22.168 with --force) and reinstall them
against mtl-2. That doesn't work however, if any of them have a dependency
bound mtl < 2, so check that first (and even if they have no upper bound on
mtl, they may use the State or Writer, ... data constructors which aren't
available anymore since State etc. are now type synonyms).
Or upgrade to ghc-7.0.3 and install everything fresh.
