I installed GHC 6.10.1 today and expected it to contain the cabal command line 
utility.  Unfortunately, this was not the case.  Where can I download it?  
How do I install and configure it so that it is integrated best with 
GHC 6.10.1?  For example, should cabal use some directory in the GHC tree to 
place compiled packages in?

<http://hackage.haskell.org/> still links to cabal-install for a convenient 
way for installing packages.  I thought that cabal-install is outdated.  
Isn’t it?  Generally, Cabal info and documentation ist too hard to find on 
the web, in my opinion.

Best wishes,
