This package has a big problem:

The PKGBUILD downloads a big amount of stuff in build():

==> Starting build()...
Preparing to download ghc-tinfo6-8.6.5 ...
ghc-tinfo6-8.6.5: download has begun
ghc-tinfo6-8.6.5:  168.53 KiB / 180.58 MiB (  0.09%) downloaded...

This must not happen! build(), as well as package() and check(), must not assume internet connection.

For a clean user experience and build process, please make sure that everything which is needed gets downloaded via the source-array (this way, also download settings in makepkg.conf can be honoured). If needed, add some extra code that builds source during runtime.

Only if this is not possible you can also use prepare() as an exception, to download stuff.

But after prepare(), everything needed to build the package has to be on disk.

Please fix that.

Thanks for maintaining (-:!
