Maybe we should adjust the windows build script to skip it by default?

@alanz you mean replace building with some warning in hie-8.6.3 target? Sounds like a good idea.

So that others can avoid the same mistake I made, the ReadMe should use hie-8.6.2 as the Nightly installation example and point out that 8.6.3 is currently broken. I.e.,

Install Nightly (and hoogle docs):

stack ./install.hs hie-8.6.2
stack ./install.hs build-doc-8.6.2

(Note, nightly GHC-8.6.3 is currently broken. Please use an alternate version, such as the above, until it's patched.)

The nightly is now 8.6.4, and will be used in master when #1129 lands.
