A variation of that worked:
cabal install haskeline --extra-include-dirs=/usr/include --extra-lib-dirs=/usr/local/lib
Perhaps the inclusion of "/usr/local/lib" can be automated on FreeBSD in the future?
Now that I'm past that I'm getting a notice about "curl" being missing,
which should be straightforward to address. I'll post further notes to
darcs-users once this compile/install is done.
Thanks for your help!
