The process library in the trunk does not build with GHC 7.0.x. The reason is that GHC 7.0.x does not seem to support the "interruptible" FFI calls, but the macro asserts that GHC 7 supports it.

People on #ghc (thanks to thoughtpolice) have confirmed that GHC 7.1.x supports it. I hereby propose a patch to bump the version check from 700 to 710.

Thanks, your patch was not quite right (710 should be 701), but I'll fix and commit.
