(Disclaimer: I'm only going by what I've heard on #haskell)

That would be a symptom of trying to build Yi using cabal.  Yi is
supposed to be built using Makefiles.  Scary, eh?  The makefiles
perform confiugration and then call the cabal, which isn't intended to
be used directly. 

(jyp: maybe that message should be changed to mention the intended
build procedure?)
