It appears that starting from ghc 7.10 base is no longer present in the haddock html index distributed with ghc.

% grep -c base ~/.stack/programs/x86_64-linux/ghc-7.8.4/share/doc/ghc/html/libraries/index.html

% grep -c base ~/.stack/programs/x86_64-linux/ghc-7.10.2/share/doc/ghc/html/libraries/index.html

In 48746ff/ghc:

Docs: make sure all libs are included in index.html (#10879)

During the build, when HADDOCK_DOCS=YES, the command 'cd libraries && sh
gen_contents_index --intree' is run, which calls haddock to generate the
haddock index at 'libraries/dist-haddock/index.html'.

What it did before was check the ./packages file for all libraries. The
problem is that 'base' and 'ghc-prim' were folded into the main repo
some time ago, hence don't have an entry in the ./packages file anymore.
As a result, 'base' and 'ghc-prim' were missing from the index.html

It now simply runs haddock on all the all the `.haddock` files in the
libraries directory.

The only risk is that this could include the extra libraries in the
index.html, if you ever built them in the past (with
BUILD_EXTRA_PKGS=YES), even though now you want to exclude them (with
BUILD_EXTRA_PKGS=NO). gen_contents_index doesn't have access to build
system variables though (PACKAGES_STAGE1+PACKAGES_STAGE2), so fixing
this would be a little bit fiddly.

Test Plan:
'make libraries/dist-haddock/index.html && grep -q base
libraries/dist-haddock/index.html && echo ok'
