I have Haskell Platform 2011.2.0.1 and I assumed that haddock comes with 
it. Now I checked the version - it is 2.9.2 and cabal info tells me that 
the last version is 2.10.0 and that I don't have the package installed (?).

Ok, now I see, haddock is that from the patform and I never install it 
with cabal...
