 The `--package-db=` flag does appear to work, closing.

 Before the Cabal- release I did two independent builds of
 everything on Hackage (well, at least everything that can consistently be
 installed simultaneously) using isolated prefixes and package dbs. It even
 works doing both builds simultaneously (after fixing how temp dirs are
 selected and where log files go).
