[Haskell-beginners] cabal -j

For sure one downside is that the output is less verbose (you wouldn't
see anything otherwise) and buffered; in case of an error only last 10
or so lines are printed which makes it harder to debug. When I
encounter such problem I always rerun the build without -j to see the
actual problem in full.

Unexperienced users would have much problem with this.

Best regards,
