Comment(by ttuegel):

 Actually, I don't think you can test an in-place version of Cabal this
 way.  Yes, the main testsuite program will be compiled against the new
 version of Cabal, but some (most?) of the tests compile and run their own
 Setup.hs files, which will pick up the _installed_ version of Cabal
 instead of the version you _think_ you are testing.
