Hi and Merry Christmas!  I'm trying to get xmonad working on my Ubuntu
Gusty install.  I'm getting ideas from this link on how to install it
(it's only for xmonad 0.4):

So for mtl-1.1.0 and X11-1.4.1 I do:
sudo runhaskell Setup.* configure;
runhaskell Setup.* build
sudo runhaskell Setup.* install;

For and xmonad-0.5 I do:
pushd xmonad-0.5/;
runhaskell Setup.* configure --prefix=$HOME --user;
runhaskell Setup.* build
runhaskell Setup.* install

I get the following error for each of the "runhaskell" lines in the
xmond-0.5 dir:
Setup.lhs: xmonad.cabal:25: 'Executable' stanza starting with field
'flag small_base

Here is the output of "ghc-pkg list"
    Cabal-, X11-1.4.1, base-2.1.1, filepath-1.0, (ghc-6.6.1),
    haskell98-1.0, mtl-1.0.1, mtl-, parsec-2.0, readline-1.0,
    regex-base-0.72, regex-compat-0.71, regex-posix-0.71, rts-1.0,
    stm-2.0, template-haskell-2.1, unix-2.1

Any ideas?
