I don't like this kind of non-descriptive error messages. What I'd really like 
to see in such a case is "No library found in package. If this happened to you 
during a 'cabal install', please report it as a bug to bugs at darcs.net".

I can imagine this will go wrong when a developer hacks the cabal file not to 
build the library to save time. Maybe it's just better to handle the case that 
there's no library.

For now, I am applying this patch to get 2.4 beta 2 out the door.
