A few times when I've commented on threads relating to package
managers and cabal-install I've also heard comments along the lines of
"most questions related to installing Haskell libs come from users of
distro package managers, not from from users of cabal-install".
However, this doesn't match my personal experience at all.

If you do indeed have /any/ problems with [haskell-core] then please
raise them on github.com/archhaskell/habs (or here if that fails)
since I'm very interested in making sure our packages install and work
