[Haskell-cafe] confusion about cabal-install install

I'm trying to install cabal-install.  I ran:

    $ cabal update && cabal install cabal-install

After compiling, cabal reported:

    Installing executable(s) in /home/ajs/.cabal/bin

    Installed cabal-install-

But now consider:

    $ cabal --version

    cabal-install version

    using version 1.16.0 of the Cabal library

    $ which cabal


    $ /home/ajs/.cabal/bin/cabal --version

    cabal-install version

    using version of the Cabal library

I am confused.  My path is set to point to "$HOME/.cabal/bin/:$PATH"
