-= Quirky things about the build system =-
* The Makefile wraps the standard Cabal setup script; the Makefile is
a convinience for bootstrapping the system. "sudo make install"
should handle HUnit, generate the setup script, configure, build,
install, and register it in a standard location.
* GNUmakefile is the one you're probably interested in. If you see
Makefile, it is probably from the fptools build tree, and it won't
work on its own.

* HUnit is included both as a test case for Cabal, and because Cabal
uses HUnit for testing. Don't panic.
* HUnit also uses the standard setup script interface, and has to get
installed and registered before you can build the setup for Cabal.
