Trying to build and run XMonad from within a cabal sandbox
using the sandbox feature found in cabal HEAD doesn't manage
to build the xmonad binary from xmonad.hs. I belive it's
caused by the ghc calls in XMonad.Core.
Did anybody else try this?
This is how you can see for yourself:
* install cabal-install HEAD
git clone git://github.com/haskell/cabal.git
ghc --make Setup
./Setup configure --user
* use cabal sandbox for xmonad and XMonadContrib
cabal sandbox-OTHER_COMMANDS (add source, install, etc.)
The build output will be in .cabal-sandbox.
