I was trying to install ad (Automatic Differentiation) but got the
following error. I guess the answer is to upgrade my ghc (perhaps
someone could confirm) but I am using the Haskell Platform and would
rather stick with that. I see from http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/
that the next release is due out in May. Will that be early May? in
which case I may well wait a week or will it be late May? in which case
I might bite the bullet and upgrade my ghc.
