> Which log files would be helpful? From looking at "ps ax" when it was
running it seems that the linking (ld) part of the install is the bit that
takes a long time. About 8hrs on this machine, whether I used

   1. ghc --make Setup
   2. ./Setup configure --user
   3. ./Setup build

or subsequently

   1. ./dist/build/cabal/cabal update
   2. ./dist/build/cabal/cabal install cabal-install

Just let me know what you need, and I'll be happy to try a fresh install to
recreate the problem if needed - once I've backed up this one!
