 Note, it actually needs:

 cabal configure -O0 --package-db=../dist/package.conf.inplace
 --constraint='Cabal == 1.9.1'

 (or whatever the development version of Cabal is)

 to force it to use the latest version, otherwise it picks the older
 version since that version would be consistent with the version that the
 ghc package depends on. Cabal always tries to use consistent deps, but
 without the patched QC, we're trying to force it to pick inconsistent ones
 (since WC depends on the the ghc package which depends on an older Cabal
