After announcing the barchart package, I have some problems building
its Haddock documentation.

Hence, I tried to generate it myself, but

I noticed, that 'cabal haddock' does generate (external) Links to
Hackage when I use the --html-location option after reinstalling all
required packages *locally*.
Why do I have to istall local documentation in order to get external
Secondly, there are no Haddocks for the Diagrams library on Hackage
and, hence, the links from the barchart docs to Diagrams's types are
broken. I'd like to specify a custom link target for only the Diagrams
package (the Diagrams website has Haddock documentation).
Is this possible?
Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
