Did you re-run configure after changing the cabal file?

Also, what ghc-pkg says has absolutely nothing to do with this; the
options Cabal passes completely override the ghc-pkg exposure flags.I
can hardly fault you for not knowing the answer to a Cabal FAQ, since
Cabal doesn't actually have a FAQ list yet.

You are running into the same problem as
and most of my explanation there applies here.
