Really? I get the opposite. In 6.8.1 the ghc-pkg entries for the haddock
files were messed somehow so Cabal would always ignore those packages
and not ask haddock to try and generate links to them. From my testing
that's fixed in the 6.8.2 snapshots.

Did Cabal earlier give warnings like:

  The documentation for package base- is not installed. No links
to it will be generated.

That's what I was getting previously.

Perhaps you can investigate further and give some more details.
