building only the docs

Do you expect this to work?

<setup> clean
<setup> configure
<setup> haddock
<setup> install

I get, e.g.:

$ runghc Setup install
Installing: /home/peteg/lib/HaXml-1.13.2/ghc-6.6.1
Installing: /home/peteg/bin
Setup.hs: Error: Could not find module:  
Text.ParserCombinators.HuttonMeijerWallace with any suffix: ["hi"]

whereas if I swap "build" for "haddock" line the "install" line does  
not complain about the lack of docs to install.
