 When configuring a library or executable which has specified a C header
 with includes: in its .cabal file, and that header is actually Objective-C
 or includes other headers which are, configure fails.  This is because of
 the test that Cabal does to determine whether all prerequisite C libraries
 are present, in which it compiles with gcc directly rather than going
 through the Haskell compiler as it does in the build phase.

 I'm working on a patch to this and should have it in about an hour.
