Comment(by MikolajKonarski):

 It wouldn't hurt to allow relative paths to the compiler, too. Right now
 the following fails:

 cabal install -w ../ghc.bkp/inplace/bin/ghc-stage2 parallel
 Resolving dependencies...
 Configuring containers-
 cabal: Cannot find the program 'ghc' at '../ghc.bkp/inplace/bin/ghc-
 stage2' or on the path

 but the same compilation works OK if installing from a source directory,
 not from Hackage.

 BTW, If/when it's done, it would make sense to remove the tip about
 absolute paths, I've added in
