Documentation can be found on Hackage.

Building from Git repository

When building this package directly from the Git repository, one must run autoreconf -i to generate the configure script needed by cabal configure. This requires Autoconf to be installed.

autoreconf -i
cabal install

There is no need to run the configure script manually however, as cabal configure does that automatically.
