OK, it looks like cabal has gone slightly broken again. :-(
Here's the test data:
OS X 10.4.8/ppc
PowerBook G4, 1.5 GHz, 1 GB ram
ghc-6.6, cabal 1.1.6 as distributed with ghc-6.6, built using macports
Welcome to Darwin!
crossroads-able> cd ~/Desktop/edison-184.108.40.206-source/test/
Cases: 1728 Tried: 1728 Errors: 0 Failures: 0
Everything looks good but for the package registration.
I should add that I find the Edison package wonderfully easy
to work with. It has really helped me out while writing simulation
of the custom communication system for a customer. Many thanks
to you, Rob, and Chris Okasaki for this fine software!
