Comment (by duncan):

 Note that the immediate problem is fixed, we say what the "cabal-install"
 tool is in the `Setup.hs` file. This lets you install the platform meta-
 package using cabal if you already have cabal, alex and happy installed.

 However the main problem remains, that cabal does not follow `build-tools`
 as dependencies. It currently only tracks `build-depends`, ie deps on
