The message there is incorrect for Mac OS X; cabal installs executables
somewhere under ~/Library/Haskell, and (inconsistently and incoherently)
sometimes in per-package bin directories under that.  This is a PITA that I
don't know how to work around properly (just setting the bin directory
~/.cabal/config still seems to keep the occasional per-package bin
directory silliness).

Expect to have to "find ~/Library/Haskell -name bin -type d" periodically
to figure out where cabal put stuff, and symlink it all to ~/bin or
whatever.  :/
