Thanks Roberto. If I do the "ghc-pkg describe base" thing it does
seem to have the wrong haddock paths with the current Windows build.
I guess this must be where Cabal gets it's info from.

I did try moving the whole html dir up one level (so it's where
the paths say it should be AFAICS) but it still doesn't work. So
it looks like there's something else going wrong here too.

BTW, does anyone know if are there any plans to include something
like haddock-options: in Cabal? There are other things I'd like
to do with it (like get it to link to the source code).
