If you look over at


several of the modules are still stuck in NEW, and thus not in sid in 6.8 
versions yet, including parsec and the regex stuff.  So pretty much nothing 
else is going to work until ftpmaster processes that stuff.

FWIW, the darcs repo for MissingH has 6.8.x compatibility patches already. 

darcs get --partial http://software.complete.org/missingh

for the 6.8.x goodness

which you can use if you grab the haskell-* packages from haskell-unsafe and 
then build that
