That means you don't have the C library installed, or at least that cabal
can't find it. You have to install it otherwise or put it in a directory in
your %PATH%. I'm not familiar with Windows, so I can't tell you how to do
that. You could search on the haskellwiki, perhaps there are instructions

If cabal complains about a missing foreign dependency, trying a manual
install won't help, runhaskell ./Setup configure won't look anywhere cabal
