Why do user installs 'not work at all' on OS X ??

I'm on OS X 10.5, I always use cabal install (user), and never 
encountered any problems. The only caveat duncan mentioned is to pass 
--user to 'runhaskell Setup.hs' (which I never use, because there's cabal).

For me, following 'cabal install fgl uulib uuagc', uhc compiled without 
any problems. There is a small issue (5) with 'make install' though: The 
'bin' directory is not created if neccessary.
