You need to install the "cabal-install" package. The Cabal package is
just the library. The "cabal-install" package provides the cabal.exe
command line program.
The README is right but it's referring to the library. I've added the
following to the README which will hopefully make it clearer in future:
Installation instructions for the Cabal library
If you also want the `cabal` command line program then you need
the `cabal-install` package in addition to this library.
Also I added the following note to the "Installing as a user" section
Note the use of the `--user` flag at the configure step.
