I am also interested in the complete output of "ghc -v" and "ghc-pkg 
list -v".

Meanwhile, the pros may notice that

>>>>> Configuring Cabal-

is very suspicious because GHC 7.0.2 comes with exactly Cabal-, 
so there is no normal reason why it is being re-installed 
(cabal-install's bootstrap.sh certainly detects that, and I have just 
tested it); and immediately next

base >= 4 && <3 is very very ill, usually a sign of a very messed up 
collection of packages.
