I have the same problem with haskell-src-exts and with hs-plugins as 
well. I tried with a default installation of ghc-6.4.1 and later with 
the updated Cabal-1.1.4, but it remains the same. Using the Makefile 
instead of Cabal there is no problem, it also works with vshaskell or on 
a Linux box with the same software versions.

Here is the error message:

$ runhaskell Setup.hs build
Preprocessing library plugins-0.9.10...
Building plugins-0.9.10..

"The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x0000000". The 
memory could not be "read".
