Ticket #174 (closed defect: invalid)
Cabal no longer adds binaries to PATH
|Reported by:||duncan||Owned by:||MtnViewMark|
A user reported this in the Cabal trac, but the issue is actually the change in the cabal config that the OSX installer makes. I'm not making a judgement on whether this change is good or not, just passing on the report.
Clearly this user had set things up so that the binaries were on the $PATH and this having changed is confusing.
My guess is that we should set things up so that we use a symlink bindir somewhere sensible. That probably just needs a fix to get the symlinks correct when a per-package bindir is being used.
