It should be able to use one of the actual bytestring releases. In this
case it needs to be the same api as in 0.9.0.1, so the appropriate
version should be 0.9.0.4 since that is supposed to have exactly the
same API. As it happens we made a mistake in 0.9.0.2 if I recall
correctly and made a minor api change (compatible addition, not breaking
change). I don't recall what it was, you'd have to diff to find it.
So I think either ghc-6.8.3 should use the existing bytestring-0.9.0.4
release or we should do another bytestring-0.9.0.5 release with the
fixes but without the api addition.
