Which tells me I have base- *and* base- ;-)

Yeah, that's what I figured...

Alrighty then, so how I just do Setup configure, and now Setup sdist, 
and then I can upload the result to Ha-- oh, don't be silly. That would 
simply be too easy. ;-)

E:\Haskell\AOC-HalfInteger>runhaskell Setup sdist
Building source dist for AOC-HalfInteger-1.0...
Preprocessing library AOC-HalfInteger-1.0...
Setup: tar is required but it could not be found.

Time to go search the web and find out what the other 50 people who 
stumbled into this did... *sigh*
