The package you are trying to install is marked as outdated since November
15th 2013.
darcs which is used to install your package is itself marked as outdated
it looks like the program is written in python 2.6 (at least that's what
the changelog on their website says, the changelog in their sourcecode
isn't up to date...)
It seems the whole error you have is not installing "haskell-mmap" which is
installed from your output... what I don't understand
The error when you run the python code like this is expected, since you are
running it with python3, try running "python2 blink" and make sure that
your pythonpath environment variable isn't set. for any further assistance
I suggest you download the needed aur-tarballs by hand and build them one
by one. If you encounter an  error, post only the output of building this
