Cabal and c2hs

I've made some progress. I've installed c2hs. I'm still puzzled as to why
./Setup configure didn't complain.
My cabal file is now:
Author: Dominic Steinitz
Synopsis: The Haskell equivalent of ping
And cabal magically finds the IP_ICMP.chs file and preprocesses it. However, I
need to execute the following:
c2hs ip_icmp.h IP_ICMP.chs
How do I get cabal to do this? I saw this
http://www.haskell.org//pipermail/haskell/2005-April/015728.html. Does that
mean I need to modify cabal? Or can I use UserHooks? Are there any examples?
