#315: cabal-install (0.5.1) tool options are reversed

  Severity:  normal              |     Keywords:

 When passing tool options to cabal, such as in "cabal configure --user
 --c2hs-options='-C -xc -c cpp-4.2'", building with -v shows that the
 options are passed to c2hs in reverse order, and the build fails.

 Reversing them before passing them to cabal makes the build work;
 meanwhile, if Setup.hs is invoked directly the options are not reversed.
