I've just attached my fix for hard-float ABI build failure on GHC HEAD
to the #5914.
I would be more than glad if you can attempt to merge it to 7.4.x you
are packaging and test if it works for you on both soft and hard float
ABI. Hard seems to be preferred these days at least on Linux...
If you keep me posted about this either by email or by adding info to
bug above, I would really appreciate it.
Once you verify the fix is working on 7.4.x I'll push it for inclusion
on HEAD even I'm not able to bootstrap it fully (see #6043) and from
HEAD it will be merged hopefully to 7.4.x branch to easy your packaging
