 It's working for me with the current darcs version so long at the user-
 prefix path is quoted. In your example you do have it quoted so I don't
 know what problem you ran into exactly. I'm changing that to be consistent
 with the .cabal format which allows quoted or unquoted paths.

 The error in the error message, that it reports "prefix" rather than
 "user-preifx" is an artifact of the current config parser that I don't
 intend to fix because the whole thing is going to be replaced shortly.

 If you still see this problem, reopen this ticket.
