Ticket #716 (new enhancement)
Inconsistent behavior between custom and simple build types
|Reported by:||j3h||Owned by:|
If a Custom build-type is used, Setup.hs may be built with a different version of Cabal than the one that cabal-install was built with. This can cause hard-to-find (seemingly random) build failures.
Perhaps cabal-install should warn when it runs Setup.hs with a different version of Cabal than the one that it was built with. Alternatively, it could fail if the version of Cabal that cabal-install was built with is not available when compiling the Setup script.
