For those interested, the links is <http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/twitter-0.1>. Hackage reports a build-failure, but I think that particular problem is because of Curl's Haddock failure.

That said, I did run into a build problem:


gwern at localhost:4089~/twitter-0.1>cabal-install twitter [ 3:30PM]
'twitter-0.1' is cached.
Configuring twitter-0.1...
Preprocessing executables for twitter-0.1...
Building twitter-0.1...

    Could not find module `GUI.Terminal':
      Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
twitter-0.1 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1


Is GUI.Terminal some special Mac haskell package I wouldn't have on Linux?
