 `cabal build` should run `cabal configure` if needed, even if the user
 never ran `cabal configure` manually before. Right now `cabal build`
 without `cabal configure` gives:

 cabal: Run the 'configure' command first.

 We should simply run `cabal configure` automatically, with no flags set.
 If the user wants different flags he/she can run `cabal configure`
