 I am getting ExitFailure 11 when trying to install hledger on Debian and
 openSUSE. I reported this to the hledger author, Simon, and he said he is
 experiencing this on his machines too and for other packages, not just

 Log file attached. Summary below:

 ledger:~/ $ cabal install -v3 hledger
 Lots of debug output (see attached)...
 hledger-0.13 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
 ExitFailure 11

 ledger:~/ $ cabal --version
 cabal-install version 0.8.2
 using version of the Cabal library

 ledger:~/ $ ghc --version
 The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.12.1
