I had been recently using cabal-dev for my development work. Someone suggested I switch over to the new cabal 1.18 on #haskell. After doing so, some projects do not seem to build anymore. I'm not an experienced Haskell developer, so I'm not sure how to go about debugging such a problem. I've included the output of the install command.
