[Haskell] macports, cabal, cabal-install difficulty

Hello, I'm new to this list and to hackage/cabal/cabal-install and
haskell on the mac generally. I don't dare post on cabal-devel because
I'm a newbie.
I came to this question because I haven't been able to install the unix
package properly (some packages I want depend on it) but I've posted
separately in haskell-cafe on that.
I've port version 1.9.2 and haskell-platform @2009.2.0.2 (devel, haskell)
My question: Is cabal currently out-of-the-box compatible with
macports? I seem to have problems with cabal-install, in particular the
ld warning and the fact that cabal doesn't seem to know what version of
cabal-install is installed.
