Yes, you're right. With the upheaval (again) of the interpreter, things
will be a little flakey for a while. Furthermore, we're phasing out the
4.09 branch (before-ghci-branch) before we get into merge hell.
However, building the HEAD with 4.08.1 should work.
Sorry about the recent instability guys - I'll try to make sure things
settle down ASAP.
