Default emerge haskell-opengl- failed

Hello list,

this is my first posting to this mailinglist since I recently switched
to Gentoo. I worked a few years with ArchLinux, then dumped it for
FreeBSD and - due to getting a new Laptop (Thinkpad X220) - I
considered switching back to Linux. So, here I am.

I tried to install haskell-platform (the overlay, that is) and it got
me into the following problem: emerging haskell-opengl- failed.
I append the build.log.

Thanks in advance,
greetings from Cologne,
Christian Lask.

First off, thanks for the report!
I've pushed the fix this morning, so it should already be on mirrors:

> +files/opengl-, opengl-
> Fix build failure against ghc-7.4 (reported by Christian Lask).

Another note: you are mixing stable (opengl) and unstable (ghc) packages.
It is usually fine, but in order to use anything from overlay you'll
need to set unstable keywords for packages there.

contains some notes on adding haskell repo via layman.
