Changes (by duncan):

  * status:  new => closed
  * resolution:  => fixed
  * milestone:  => cabal-install-0.10


 Ok, reproduced it and fixed it. The fix will be in the next cabal-
 install-0.10.x release.

 As a temporary workaround, use:
 $ cabal install --only-dependencies
 $ cabal configure

   * Fix silly bug in cabal configure. Ticket #805.
   I made a mistake during the recent refactoring work and was using
   the dependency planner in the wrong way. The planner was being
   given the available source packages and duely picking them to
   satisfy dependencies, but for configure we're supposed to assume
   that all dependencies are installed already.
