So every package you are having problems with is in your user package
list? Perhaps there is some disagreement in either Cabal or GHC or
both as to where those packages/that package file should be? Perhaps
try a cabal install --global haskell-src-exts and see if that makes a
difference, or attach --user to a configure command.
