I'm not the most sophisticated user of cabal-install ever, but it appears
to me that 8.8.1 can't build  depends on base >= 4.8 && < 4.13,
where 8.8.1 installs base-

I'm working with cabal-install- .  It looks like it might
be possible to up some of the dependencies, like HTTP to 4000.3.14, but
I suppose there's a reason why cabal-install itself isn't there yet.
