Hi,

since 7.8, GHC’s interface files seem to record dependencies with their
full file path, e.g.:
addDependentFile "/build/ghc-Na5lKv/ghc-7.8.4/includes/MachDeps.h"

This causes interface hashes to change and hence a complete rebuild of
all Debian Haskell packages after an upload of GHC :-(

Maybe the build system can be patched to use relative filenames, haven’t
checked yet. Volunteers welcome!

You can check the contents of the the interface files using
$ ghc --show-iface /usr/lib/ghc/base-4.7.0.2/Data/OldTypeable/Internal.hi

Greetings,
Joachim
