Cabal folk: it looks as if updating Cabal has made GHC on Windows break. Might you investigate?

Looks like the commit with the Cabal submodule update causes this .
The revision before that commit still builds fine on my system, while everything else after that commit dies early at build . Is this only me, has anybody else experienced the problem? Perhaps I am doing something wrong? I do not remember to see any related "heads-up"
message on the list, like I should update any of the build-time dependencies.
