 This is not a duplicate of #601. Installing a package with

   rm -rf ~/.ghc ~/.cabal
   cabal clean
   cabal configure --user --prefix="${HOME}/opt"
   cabal build
   cabal install

 will install the binaries in '/home/sk/.cabal/bin' instead of

 I'll attach a toy project demonstrating this.

   sk at watarrka:~> ghc --version
   The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.12.1

   sk at watarrka:~> cabal --version
   cabal-install version 0.8.0
   using version of the Cabal library
