 Installing a package with
 cabal clean
 cabal configure --user --prefix="${HOME}/opt"
 cabal build
 cabal install

 does not copy the data-files listed in the project.cabal file to the
 desired destination. It does not copy them anywhere at all. I would expect
 them to end below something like {{{/home/sk/opt/share/project-0.1}}}, as
 is reported by function {{{Paths_project.getDataFileName}}}.

 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
