That shouldn't be a problem....  Unless, of course, that syntax (it's
using \e::E.SomeException) is valid in GHC >= 6.10 but not previously
(in which case I would think that that's a bug).

No, I meant the package's .cabal file:

cabal unpack MonadCatchIO-mtl
cd MonadCatchIO-mtl-<version>
<edit the .cabal file>
cabal install

Note that the last line is using the .cabal file present in that
directory so you don't need to specify a certain package, etc.  Once
that's done, you should be able to do "cabal install cgi".
