It looks to me like this isn't the version from "testing" fwiw, but
the version from "unstable".  You might want to make sure that your
versions of ghc and ghc-doc are consistent.

I'm using unstable w/ ghc6-doc version 6.4-4, and this link:

Seems to give me access to each of the user's guide, hierarchical
libraries, old hierarchical libraries, and cabal docs.

First I would just check to see if this file exists:

If not, try upgrading to the new version (maybe Ian can say whether
there's any fix between -3 and -4).  If that doesn't fix it, then you
might start to wonder why you have ghc 6.4 with testing; did you get
this -doc package from the Haskell Unsafe repository, or from the
unstable repository?  Finally, file a bug report against the package
with "reportbug" if none of the above works.
