Perhaps it's in /usr/local/share/doc.  Mine seem to end up there, and I
don't recall whether I specified that at any point.

It's not in my ~/.cabal/config, but I am using the very helpful
  user-install: False
  documentation: True

I suspect /usr/local/share/doc is the default for documentation in global
installs, but I can't go verify that at the moment.
