You shouldn't be using either, directly.  Instead, for each file in a
-doc package that you are using, look up the package that it belongs

The -doc packages' names don't necessarily match with the cabal
package names, if there are multiple versions of a library packaged at
the same time, like with quickcheck (if only quickcheck1 would get
through NEW).
