Fix it so that it gives an error message like the one the install command gives:

pep:~/scratch$ cabal-install install blah
cabal-install: Couldn't satisfy dependency: 'blah -any'.
While there, perhaps fixing this user message to make it more clear would be a good idea too.

The error message for fetch and install are the same now, in cabal-install 0.4.
