Making the encoding Haskell package compile with ghc-7.8.2

Hello.

I use encodign in a Haskell application and I would like to have it
working with ghc-7.8.2.

So I am kindly asking to, if possible, update the encoding package[1] to
be compilable with ghc-7.8.2.

Currently it fails with the messages:

[...]
