Fails during configuration:

bash-3.2$ cabal install lhs2tex
    Resolving dependencies...
    [1 of 1] Compiling Main             (
/tmp/lhs2tex-1.1423397/lhs2tex-1.14/dist/setup/Main.o )
    Linking /tmp/lhs2tex-1.1423397/lhs2tex-1.14/dist/setup/setup ...
    Configuring lhs2tex-1.14...
    cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
    lhs2tex-1.14 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
    exit: ExitFailure 11

Note that the the first module to be compiled is Main.  On my linux machine,
Main is the *last* of several modules to be compiled.

Here's my failure log:

If instead I use ./configure and make, i get errors due to use of the old
Exception API:

    [17 of 19] Compiling FileNameUtils    ( FileNameUtils.lhs,
FileNameUtils.o )

        Ambiguous type variable `b' in the constraint:
          `GHC.Exception.Exception b'
            arising from a use of `catch' at
        Probable fix: add a type signature that fixes these type variable(s)

Suggestions greatly appreciated!
