I thought this thread suggested that a cabal install wx would now

generated 2439 constant definitions
setup.exe: wx-config: does not exist
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:

wxcore-0.12.1.4 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
If wxHaskell could be installed with one cabal command that would be
incredibly cool :-)
