lax- just built fine for me using 6.8.3,

package: lax-
os: linux
arch: i386
compiler: ghc-6.8.3
client: cabal-install-0.6.0
dependencies: base-
install-outcome: InstallOk
docs-outcome: NotTried
tests-outcome: NotTried

Probably the log is empty because no build outcomes have been reported
(I just tried cabal report and got
cabal: /home/dafis/.cabal/reports/ getDirectoryContents: 
does not exist (No such file or directory)
, I can't be bothered now to find out what I'd have to do to make it work).
