Instead of grabbing Cygwin, grab two other files along with MinGW

Presume you are at the SourceForge download page for MinGW (yes, I
know SF is annoying):

Under Current, unfold the full listing of packages:

Unfold MinGW, MSYS, and MSYS Developer Tool Kit.

Download the latest of 
  + MinGW-*.exe, 
  + MSYS-*.exe, 
  + msysDTK-*.exe

There aren't many .exe files, so it should be easy to pick them out.

Install MinGW, then MSYS, then msysDTK.  They are all ordinary Windows
installers (NSIS I think).  This installs your system in the
"approved" manner, so it should be easy to later grab individual
updates and simply unpack them into here.

That should take care of your non-Haskell related packages.
