Below is what I get *now* having just successfully installed a fresh
GHC 7.0.3 and HP 2011.2.0.1. By "successfully installed" I mean that
configure, make and make install didn't throw up any errors. I haven't
tested that anything works yet.
Checking installed packages for ghc-7.0.3...
parsec-126.96.36.199 will be downloaded and installed.
network is already installed and the version is ok.
Cabal-188.8.131.52 will be downloaded and installed.
mtl-184.108.40.206 will be downloaded and installed.
HTTP-4000.0.8 will be downloaded and installed.
zlib is already installed and the version is ok.

My thoughts exactly.
