In your ~/.cabal/config file, uncomment the line

-- documentation: True

(or was it "-- documentation:" originally? In which case you'd have to write the "True" 

Then cabal install will build haddocks for each package it installs and put the docs in 
the standard place (~/.cabal/share/doc/ for user installs, I think; /usr/local/share/doc 
for global installs, IIRC).
