   * Allow $arch and $os in install paths.
   Fixes ticket #312. For example a user could use:
     cabal configure --libsubdir="$pkgid/$compiler/$arch"
   if they wanted to have packages for multiple architectures
   co-exist in the same filestore area.

 Of course, for cabal-install this `libsubdir` setting could be saved in
 the cabal config file.

   * Document the $os and $arch install path vars
