Cabal for the GHC build

It's a pity that even simple libraries need a 67-line Setup.hs to make the
GHC build work.  How about moving the --ghc-option and --configure-option
flags into Cabal?  --configure-option might be a better idea than the
current behaviour of "setup configure" in defaultUserHooks, namely to
pass through all unrecognized arguments.
