Ticket #436 (closed enhancement: fixed)
cabal-install readme could mention zlib dependency

The cabal-install README mentions the dependency on the zlib Haskell package, which is pulled in by bootstrap.sh, but not on the C library, which isn't. It might be useful to mention it (Ubuntu package: "zlib1g-dev") in the installation instructions/quickstart sections of the README (it took me a moment to figure out why the build was failing even though I was following instructions, and which package I needed).
Thanks, - Benja
