Bug Description

As discussed in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=622731, there is a bug in the Debian version of ghc 7.0.3-1, which results in the following error when using Template Haskell:

ghc: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
  (GHC version 7.0.3 for x86_64-unknown-linux):
 loadArchive "/usr/lib/ghc-7.0.3/ghc-7.0.3/libHSghc-7.0.3.a": failed

This means that packages using the 'ghc' library have a difficult time compiling. The bug was solved in version 7.0.4-1, so I request to reimport it from Debian.
