There are some (old, and not often used) scripts in the archhaskell
repo[1] that may serve as a starting point for upgrades of ghc.
Personally I tend to

1. build the new ghc
2. install and check the packages and versions
3. adjust the PKGBUILD
4. re-build (using the new ghc)

(I like the idea of having a package of ghc that's built using the same
version of ghc :)
