[Haskell-cafe] Problem with cabal install zlib

Oh sorry for that character. I wanted to make that part *underlined* in
gmail which uses (i guess) *'s to denote it. Just to emphasise the
problematic part.

And I was traveling for the last 2 days and I couldn't respond to your mail.

So what's the recommended thing to do now?

My output (untouched this time) is as follows:

Preprocessing library zlib-
Creating dist/build/Codec/Compression/Zlib (and its parents)
/usr/bin/hsc2hs --cc=/usr/bin/gcc --ld=/usr/bin/gcc
--cflag=-D__GLASGOW_HASKELL__=610 --lflag=-lz
--lflag=-lm --lflag=-lffi --lflag=-lgmp --lflag=-ldl -o
Only one output file may be specified
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
cabal-install-0.6.4 depends on zlib- which failed to install.
zlib- failed during the building phase. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1
