Hi Lennart, Thanks for the email. Sorry, I wrongly wrote the path "dist" when I meant "dist-newstyle". When I created a fresh project, just doing `cabal new-build' created a binary. Here is what I get in my blog directory.
ram@knuth:~/src/newblog$ cabal new-configure Resolving dependencies... In order, the following would be built (use -v for more details): zip-archive-0.3.0.5 pandoc-1.17.2 pandoc-citeproc-0.10.1 hakyll-126.96.36.199 rkrishnan-0.0.1 ram@knuth:~/src/newblog$ cabal new-build .

Thanks again.
