filepath then it is slightly harder but still possible.

# rename to make the following instructions simpler:
mv filepath- filepath/
mv Cabal- Cabal/
cd Cabal
ghc -i../filepath --make Setup.lhs -o ../filepath/setup
ghc -i../filepath -cpp --make Setup.hs -o ../filepath/setup
cd ../filepath/
./setup configure
./setup configure --user
./setup build
./setup install
