Actually, c2hs's setup is doing something that only works on unix. In
fact it doesn't even always work on unix. For the Gentoo ebuild we
changed it because it doesn't work in the context of installing into a
temp dir.

A temporary hack is to change the Setup.hs to be just:

import Distribution.Simple
main = defaultMain

it means that c2hs's --copy-library feature will not work but everything
else should. We'll have to look into doing that in a more portable way.
