> * zlib-0.4.0.4.tar.gz
> * Cabal-18.104.22.168.tar.gz
> 3) build and install http, zlib, Cabal and then cabal-install

> runhaskell Setup.hs configure
> runhaskell Setup.hs build
> sudo runhaskell Setup.hs install

> 4) once cabal-install is installed you can do

> 5) from now if you want to install package a just type
> cabal install a --global
> cabal should download packages b,c,d for you if required.
