Assuming you're using wxHaskell on linux with wxGTK then the usual
problem with compiling wxHaskell is that it's sensitive to how wxGTK was

I was trying various combinations for the Gentoo ebuild. I found that
the only combination that works is when wxGTK is built against Gtk+ 2.x
and without Unicode support and without ODBC support. If either of those
two wxGTK features are turned on then it leads to compile failures.

Hope that helps.
