Broken Cabal on Windows

I've got Windows, GHC 6.6.1 and I just tried to upgrade Cabal. Now
Cabal is totally broken on my system.

>From the Cabal directory:
$ darcs pull
$ runhaskell Setup configure
$ runhaskell Setup build
$ runhaskell Setup install

All completed with a nice pile of warnings, but no errors.

Then from any other Cabal package directory:
D:\sources\temp\catch-0.1>runhaskell Setup configure
C:\Program Files\Haskell\Cabal-1.1.7\ghc-6.6.1/HSCabal-1.1.7.o: unknown symbol `
ghc.exe: unable to load package `Cabal-1.1.7'

Obviously this breaks Cabal entirely on my system.
