I managed to build it by dropping the dependency and setting
DEB_SETUP_GHC_CONFIGURE_ARGS = --with-alex=/bin/true
in debian/rules. Upstream ships the output of the generated files in
src/ as well.

I guess this could be made the default, but it would be cleaner to
remove these generated files in the clean target in regular builds.
Maybe some other time.

Binary is on exodar, ~nomeata.
