$ darcs get --partial http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/unix/
$ cas configure --user --prefix=$HOME && cas build && cas install --user

Is this a cabal version problem? Yet it seems odd that unix-2.0
builds, but unix HEAD which also has version 2.0 doesn't build...
I have a project which depends on 'unix' which I would like to use, so
