Ticket #421 (new defect)
Cabal shouldn't try to build split-objs when ghc reports it does not support it

It is possible to build ghc without support for object splitting. In such a case Cabal should refuse to work if the user enables split objs.
All one has to do is to parse the output of ghc --info (which is in a Read/Show format).
