I'm running 8.10 and can't find it in synaptic or when I do a system wide search for cabal in case it was bundled with GHC. Where can I find it for Ubuntu?

Thanks.

Cabal (the library) comes with GHC, but if you are looking for the command line cabal-install utility you'll probably need to get it from hackage and build it manually.

Actually lucid will feature cabal-install although previous ubuntu versions did not. Take a look at it here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=cabal-install
