Note that these steps results in a setup roughly equivalent to the one MinGHC provides.

If the mingw-unbundling proposal goes through and the MSYS2 package gets sanctioned, the new steps would be:

1. Install MSYS2 and update using pacman
2. Install ghc and cabal-install packages using pacman

For usage inside a POSIX shell, launch mingw64_shell.bat. For usage outside of MSYS2, add `$msysroot/mingw64/bin` to PATH.
