For anyone new to using [Haskell + Gtk2Hs + MS Windows], who, like me,
is inclined to try to statically link the Windows binary (as I
described in this thread), I've done some more research and came
across this post:

Re: [Gtk2hs-users] Making a static Windows executable with gtk2hs

The gist is that, as desirable as it might seem to try to do so, it's
just not a good idea, and things are going to work better overall
relying on the DLLs.

In the past, I had not noticed that
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk2hs/   had a mailing list
associated with it. I'm glad I found it.

(and if this "don't statically link Windows Gtk2Hs binaries" advice is
no longer current, please post. Thanks.)

Hope this helps,
