The following stackoverflow answer, hopefully shows how to configure wrappers to cabal that use different versions of GHC:

After setting-up what is outlined in the above answer, you can just:

$ cabal-ghc-7.4 install random

There may be other ways to do it, but the above is the one that I use.

The following also looks like a promising option (I have not tested it):

$ cabal install random -w /usr/bin/ghc-7.

How can I add additional packages (e.g. random) to my system to use with old versions of ghc?
