Well, it's in the user list because it can't find them in the global list.
With the exception of Haskell-src-exts all the other packages are already
available in my global list. I'll try installing global and see

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.
