I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but there's a bug in
Cabal which I noticed when I tried to configure a package:
$ runghc Setup.hs configure
configure: Reading installed packages...
cannot parse package list
It turns out Setup created a user package.conf consisting of the two
characters "" without a newline, which it was then unable to parse.
Adding a newline fixed the problem.
