[PATCH] haskell-src build fix for ghc-7.2.1

Hi all,

haskell-src is still unable to build with ghc-7.2.x, and a patch has
been available since August.

In order to fix this I'm planning to put a new release of haskell-src
on hackage with the haskell98 reference removed, and set the
maintainer to myself as part of the haskell-pkg-janitors github group
... within the next 24 hrs or so, unless anyone strongly objects (eg.
by updating the existing repo and uploading a package :).
