I'm reposting this here as something bad appeared to happen to my post
on haskell-cafe and I probably should have posted here anyway.
Cabal-install is looking good. I needed only two deps outside of Cabal-1.4.
I installed cabal-install-0.5 on ubuntu with the haskell.org linux
binary for ghc 6.8.2.
I then tried cabal-install yi
Got this output:
... many successful installs ...
Reading package info from "dist/installed-pkg-config" ... done.
Saving old package config file... done.
Writing new package config file... done.

setup: alex version >=2.0.1 && <3 is required but it could not be found.
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
yi-0.3 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
Is this a cabal problem of package problem? I would have expected it
to fail immediately instead of discover this problem so far into
