c2hs-config is not needed anymore.  I thought, I removed all traces from
the documentation, but obviously I overlooked something.  Where did you
see it?  In the HTML documentation?  (Earlier version of c2hs produced
binding code that needed a separately installed library, but that's not
the case anymore.  Now the library code to include with the generate
program is produced in source form by "--copy-library".)

That's done by Cabal; ie, in the root of c2hs source directory use

  ./Setup.hs register

You can get a list of all Cabal commands with

  ./Setup.hs --help


PS: I will answer to your earlier email with some questions soon - just 
    didn't find the time yet.
