Hey, so I am trying to compile git-annex through cabal but it fails on building uuid. It gives me this strange error:

Resolving dependencies...
Configuring uuid-1.3.1...
Building uuid-1.3.1...
Preprocessing library uuid-1.3.1...

cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
git-annex-4.20131002 depends on uuid-1.3.1 which failed to install.
uuid-1.3.1 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
ExitFailure 1

Any advice on how to proceed?

System is: Debian Wheezy (CrunchBang Waldorf) 64bit
