unix-188.8.131.52 fails to install on mac os x with 7.4.* (works with 7.6.1)
Some package I am trying to build with cabal causes cabal to try to install unix-184.108.40.206 . This fails with the following errors:

This seems to be a recent problem for me, so it may be due to some software updates for mac os x. I am running os x version 10.8.2 build 12c60. I have XCode version 4.5.1 with the "Command Line Tools" installed. I installed ghc from the haskell-platform after updating the os x and xcode (and command line tools).
