* Move expensive conviguration actions inside branch where they're used
We only need to configure the compiler and resolve any "Cabal-Version:"
dependency when we're actually going to compile the Setup.hs program.
We can otherwise save time by not calling ghc and ghc-pkg unnecessarily.
(I only noticed this because I've got >150 registered packages which
causes ghc and ghc-pkg to be very slow to start.)
M ./Distribution/Simple/SetupWrapper.hs -6 +4
