Thanks for the suggestion to check in Lucid, Trent.
By reviewing the Debian package, I was able to see what the dependencies were,
and then install them manually on Karmic before running ./bootstrap.sh:
sudo apt-get install haskell-devscripts cdbs libghc6-http-dev libghc6-network-dev libghc6-zlib-dev
I'm not sure which of those made the difference, but "cabal install" completed
after I had done that.
