What happens is that when you run "cabal install" with multiple
arguments, the dependency resolver tries to come up with an install
plan that jointly satisfies the dependencies of all arguments.
When you do the installs one at a time it is possible in some cases to
break already installed packages. One way to check for this is to use
the 'ghc-pks' command to look for broken packages.
