Using Cabal for dependancies

Hi Bjorn,

After going through pain with dependancy hell (like .dll hell, but
cross platform) I finally got cabal-install to build.

The list command looked most interesting, but:

D:\sources\contrib\Cabal\cabal-install>cabal-install list
configure: searching for ghc in path.
configure: found ghc at C:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\bin\ghc.exe
"C:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\bin\ghc.exe" --numeric-version >tmp2296
configure: looking for package tool: ghc-pkg near compiler in C:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\b
configure: found package tool in C:\ghc\ghc-6.4.2\bin\ghc-pkg.exe
cabal-install: No valid config dir found!

cabal-install emit also gives the same error.
