    Resolving dependencies...
    cabal: dependencies conflict: ghc-6.8.2 requires Cabal == however
    Cabal- was excluded because cabal2arch- requires Cabal
    && <1.

Hmm. I can't remember what we need new Cabal for...
Ah, yes,

        Could not find module `Distribution.Simple.PackageIndex':
              it is a member of package Cabal-,

How did you manage to build this?
