  * improve error message when library ends up unbuildable
  This has happened to several users recently (issue2498)

  * resolve issue2498: unconditionally use the Haskell HTTP package
  The buildable: False line in the library section was causing problems
  with GHC 8.0 (https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/3742), and
  in reality there's no value in being able to turn HTTP off.

Always using the HTTP library convinces me as a good solution. Accepted.
