What's (probably) going on is that you deleted the files for the
binary-0.5.0.1 package but did not unregister it. You probably also have
other registered packages that depend on binary-0.5.0.1 (because that's
the version they were built against).
You can use ghc-pkg to forcibly unregister binary-0.5.0.1 and rebuild
the other packages that depended on it.
Generally I recommend just leaving old packages and rebuilding things
when necessary (which cabal-install will do automatically) rather than
going about deleting or unregistering older versions of packages.
