[Haskell-cafe] Cabal: top level dependency base -any

Could anyone shed light on the meaning of this error message?
cabal: cannot configure xmonad-0.9.1 It requires base ==3.*
For the dependency on base ==3.* there are these packages:
base-22.214.171.124. However none of them are available.
base-126.96.36.199 was excluded because of the top level dependency base -any
base-188.8.131.52 was excluded because of the top level dependency base -any
My guess is that "-any" would mean either that any version is
acceptable (in which case should always work, including this time) or
that "-any" means that any version is unacceptable, in which case it
would never work, which is daft. So clearly I don't understand what it
is trying to say.
Is this documented anywhere?
