Summary

As discussed on ghc-devs@haskell.org and the trac ticket, we're removing
these packages from the 7.10 release as they no longer work correctly,
and can't easily be made to properly follow the standard as base
changes over time.

This does not remove the packages from the tree, only the build system.
