I'm possibly using cabal in a simplistic way, but I generally do either
./Setup.lhs configure -p
./Setup.lhs configure -p --prefix=$HOME --user
./Setup.lhs install --user #perhaps not needed anymore?
This is a lot of typing, and at least once I wrote a Makefile to
automate it (oh, the irony of it!)
Anyway, it would be nice if a 'cabal' command automated the whole
sequence in one go,
at least as an option.
