I would not recommend using --global on Debian/Ubuntu-systems, as it
might interfere with packages installed by Debian. I recommend to not
use --global and install it into your /home (and add ~/.cabal/bin to
your PATH).

And I wonder if they really need the very latest versions of alex and
happy (Debian is one or two minor versions behind) or whether apt-get
install alex happy would suffice...
