I tested several of them with GHC some time ago.  I'd expect all the
fptools packages except base, readline and stm to work with Cabal+GHC,
and those three are included in the proposed core.  There may be glitches
under Windows; the ones using configure will need to be built under MinGW.

BTW, the minimal Hugs distribution has base, haskell98 and Cabal only.
