Upgrading Cabal / cabal-install is a good place to start, if you're
not already using the 0.10's.  I also suggest using cabal-dev, since
issues like this can be caused by combinations of dependencies that

There's a good chance that you just have a weird mix of compiled
libraries that don't all work together, and cabal isn't able/willing
to rebuild everything necessary to make all the things in your user
package db work together.

I very recently installed Hoogle locally, on a fresh system, so I'm
fairly confident it's still possible without too many headaches :).
