When using plain
% cabal install wx
or
% cabal configure --user
% cabal build
% cabal install --user
the --user flag isn't passed through to ghc-pkg, resulting in a failure to register the package with ghc due to missing permissions to mangle files in /usr.

  • Fixed in transition to Cabalized build (versions > 0.12)
