 Replying to [comment:4 duncan]:
 > The simplest solution would be to use cabal-install rather than `runghc
 Setup`. cabal-install will rebuild things as appropriate to avoid the
 diamond dependency problem.
 To generate the documentation for a package, one must
  * build, haddock and install all pre-requisite packages
  * do the equivalent of
 runghc Setup.hs configure --ghc --user --haddock-option=--use-
 runghc Setup.hs haddock '--html-
 runghc Setup.hs haddock --hoogle
 From hunting through the code, it seems the planning stuff only happens if
 I use the "install" subcommand, but that doesn't take the haddock options
 I want to use.

 What are the cabal-install commands I should be using?
