Note the command I gave was "cabal haddock" not "haddock". The cabal one
calls haddock with the modules in the .cabal file (and other info like
the package name, version and description).

If what you wanted was to call haddock directly then you can list the
modules you like on the command line. It's usually easier to use the
cabal wrapper however since it passes all the flags to get links to
other packages which otherwise you have to list manually.
