Indeed.  It was necessary to run 'ghc-pkg hide base-' and
'ghc-pkg expose base-'.  After that these commands did the
trick: './Setup.lhs configure --user' and './Setup.lhs build'.

The '--user' option was needed because 'cabal install foo' installs a
package locally by default. [1]  (Also, see 'ghc-pkg list --user'.)
