Huh? Cabal tries to be autoconf? Unless I've missed something, there's no way 
Cabal can help me to figure out the paths to OpenGL headers, the wildly 
varying linker options for OpenGL apps, if the installed OpenAL's 
alcCloseDevice returns void or an int, the matching Haskell type for an 
ALuint, etc.
