Nice. Thanks for all tips. Reading them I understood
defaultMain works like usual 'configure' scripts, and
tried Setup.hs --help, and found the full documentation
I needed.

About cabal: the fact that the last versions of packages
are not available in the pointed place mean I should
not use cabal? For instance, utf8-string is using github.com
instead of the darcs page pointed in its hackage page. Does
that mean the package available in hackage is not the one
I should use?
