Uh... it seemed to build just fine for me (when I did it all manually).
I'm not sure I see what the problem is here. I made Cabal install 0.11.0
of each package, by hand, one at a time, and it never complained of any
unfulfilled dependencies, and the end result was a runnable program. So
I'm just puzzled why it couldn't figure out that you can do that by itself.

Yeah, that seems to be the root of the problem.
