The problem is that at the time of writing the Cabal support for Haddock
2.0, Haddock didn't support links to source code (of course, the error
message is still wrong). Now it does however, since I've merged over
everything except hoogle support from the old Haddock. So, Cabal should be
updated to support --hyperlink-source also for Haddock 2.

Thanks for noticing this.
