The latest version of cabal-dev on Hackage does not seem to have had its dependencies updated for GHC 7.6. Try installing off github (https://github.com/creswick/cabal-dev).

I have a dream of one day being able to install leksah without having
to downgrade ghc. Right now I can't even install cabal-dev with cabal.
It will break ghc if I do.
