Hi guys, 

i have some troubles to install hxt.

My first naive attempt "cabal install hxt" fails with
"cabal: cannot configure hxt-8.5.0. It requires base >=4.2 && <5".

I guess that's because i use ghc 6.10.4, since
"base-" depends on "integer-simple" which seems to only come with ghc

I then tried to install hxt-8.3.2, which seems to be the last version supporting
ghc 6.10.4.
If fails with:


    Not in scope: `optLookupEntity'
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
hxt-8.3.2 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1

I have no idea, what that means. What am i doing wrong?
