Version 0.14.1 "Travelling Lightly" of C->Haskell introduces three
* Death to make! We have got brand new Cabal-based build system.
* Brand new C lexer/parser based on Alex and Happy kindly contributed
by Duncan Coutts. This reduces the memory consumption when compiling
bindings to large C libraries dramatically.
* No separately installed marshalling library anymore. Support code
is provided in source form. Hence, a single C->Haskell installation
can generate bindings for any Haskell system and version.
The hitch is that you need to use Cabal 1.0.1 to build the system (not
version 1.0 included with GHC 6.4, as this misses a crucial feature).
PS to GHC HQ: Can we please have the latest Cabal in GHC 6.4.1?
