I have thought about Cabal and jhc many time.
Then I decide to split the problem to two stage.

* Ajhc is installed with cabal. (Perhaps, also jhc.)
* Ajhc's packages (hl files) is installed with jhc's YAML files.

* Ajhc's package (hl file) is installed with cabal.

Now I am trying to build stage1.
But stage2 is not needed for my usage.
I will create thin wrapper installer for YAML files.

Anyone try to build stage2?
