Comment(by duncan):

 I would welcome a tests/README file.

 The following works for me:
 cd cabal/
 cabal configure -O0 && cabal build
 cd tests/
 cabal configure -O0 --package-db=../dist/package.conf.inplace
 cabal build

 Due to the problem with QC, the configure step for the testsuite will warn
 about the fact that it's pulling in two versions of the Cabal library.

 Using the attached QC patch would be another solution.
