In fact it appears that this was the result of Malcolm's recent changes:

Tue Apr 24 11:42:44 BST 2007  Malcolm.Wallace at cs.york.ac.uk
   * pretend that Cabal can build with nhc98

     M ./Distribution/Simple/Build.hs +2

Mon Feb 12 17:14:19 GMT 2007  Malcolm.Wallace at cs.york.ac.uk
   * minor tweaks to nhc98 branches of case distinctions

     M! ./Distribution/Simple/Build.hs -1 +7
     M ./Distribution/Simple/Configure.hs -1 +1
     M ./Distribution/Simple/Install.hs -1 +2
     M ./Distribution/Simple/NHC.hs -8 +13
     M ./Distribution/Simple/Register.hs -1 +5

Anyway I've pushed your patch which looks like the right fix.  Thanks!
