Basically that's right, it turns out I had uncommented the line:
"-- Build-Depends:       base, mtl, HUnit"
" Build-Depends:       base, mtl, HUnit"
And that leading space still prevents the build system seeing Build-Depends
(probably obvious to someone familiar with Cabal). Anyway, the root
of the problem became apparent once I knew it was something to do
with the base package not being included.  Thanks for your time.
