I've been unable to figure out how to build Cabal with Hugs 2006.09.04:

$ *runhugs -98 Setup configure --hugs --prefix=/usr*
runhugs: Error occurred
ERROR "./Distribution/Compat/ReadP.hs":70 - Syntax error in module
definition (unexpected selector "#if")

The README file is GHC-centric, so I'm at a bit of a dead end. Do you have
any suggestions?
