It is easy enough to recreate the link manually or as easy to run cabal
install again, but that is not the point here. The point is that it will
bite the next dozen of unsuspecting users since, at first, they have no
idea of what is going on.

In any case, apologies for sending this in this thread as it doesn't seem
the right forum to discuss it.
