With "ordinary" configure scripts, you can finetune installation using
flags like --libdir, --bindir, --includedir etc. This doesn't seem to
work with Cabal just yet, but I don't think there are any reasons why
it shouldn't be implementable. Feature request? =)

I've requested it too, and the simple answer was because no one's
implemented it yet.
