[Hackage] #282: profiling versions of libraries not managed well

Ooops -- I meant to start another thread.

I have found the --package-db flag which Cabal uses.  It would be really useful if Cabal could also use an environment variable (e.g., CABAL_PACKAGE_DB) for the purpose.

Developer Peeps,

If I set up GHC_PACKAGE_PATH and use cabal-install to install a package it gives me:

	cabal: transformers- dependency
	"base-" doesn't exist (use --force to

for each library it tries to install.

Is there an easy way to get cabal to work with GHC_PACKGE_PATH smoothly? (Apologies in advance for the stupid question.)
