I belive that the test already was done by checking GHC version. Also
does cabal 1.10 build against ghc 6.10?

flagToList works the same as flagToMaybe. i.e.
Just x <-> [x]
Nothing <-> 
Flag cannot contain many values
Flag cannot contain many packages.
regPackageDb gets Flag of package database llvm is suppose to register
to from RegisterFlags.
