Sure, cabal-install has a config file which contains defaults. Currently
it only has a subset of configure options but we intend to make it cover
the full range, so it would be possible to disable optimisation

If you want to help with that it's ticket #223:

Though as I said, that's probably not what we really want. Normally we
do want to optimise when installing some package but not optimise while
we're hacking on some bit of code.

Perhaps "$ cabal install" should turn on optimisation but "$ cabal
configure" should not. Would that make sense? What do people suggest?
