cabal-install dependency on libghc-cabal-dev too tight

Hi Sven,

your fix #778987 might have been too tight: Since you have a strict "="
dependency, whenever we have to binNMU libghc-cabal-dev, we also have to
do the same to cabal-install, and in the meantime, cabal-install is
uninstallable in sid. I think we should try to avoid that.

Wouldn’t it be sufficient to have a ">=" dependency on the version it
was built with? Possibly even ">= <upstream-part-of-the-version>"?
