HP 2013.2 and GHC 7.6.2

These are the bugs in *Cabal* that got fixed between 1.16.0 and
220.127.116.11 that are relevant:
* Fix bug that makes setting "verbose: 1" or "jobs: N" in the
~/.cabal/config file crash (#980)
* Fix the logic for building profiled executables with TemplateHaskell.
* Fix logic for building dynamic executables with TemplateHaskell
Nothing major. We could probably live without these fixes.
We do need a new *cabal-install* however, as it fixes:
Disable setting the jobs: $nprocs line in default ~/.cabal config
It breaks for fresh installs with users who have Cabal-1.6.0
rather than Cabal-18.104.22.168, ie users of ghc-7.6.1.
