I have quite odd error on current Cabal master.
It's a Cabal installed on top of ghc-7.8.1.

Many .cabal files fail to parse including cabal-install-master one:

    cabal-install $ runhaskell Setup.hs configure
    Setup.hs: cabal-install.cabal:160: Parse of field 'hs-source-dirs' failed.

Latest commit is:

    commit 65e9b88bc849e76040ed7947591ea7172cd02db5
    Author: Herbert Valerio Riedel <hvr at>
    Date:   Wed Apr 9 22:55:36 2014 +0200

    Add `integer-{gmp,simple}` and `template-haskell` to list of non-upgradables
    This is related to #667 and similiar issues
