[Haskell-cafe] Cabal: disabling -fvia-C

I hope you will pardon another *ignorant* question.

'cabal install lambdabot' fails on Ubuntu Natty.

According to the following exchange and bug report



the workaround is not to use -fvia-C.

I have found an {-# OPTION -fvia-C #-} deep inside the lambdabot code  
in Plugin/Pl/Common.hs. How can I tell cabal install to ignore this?  
Is there some command line option for doing so, or do I have to edit  
the source code and somehow persuade cabal to use my hacked version ?
