Hello All,

how would I get myself a working (and easy to use) GUI-library?

Fudgets looks good, but I couldn't get it to build.
I downloaded the snapshot from 2005, how to compile says
make ghc-all; make ghc-install,
but it doesn't work.
First, in several scripts/makefiles, the ghc version 4.06 was hardwired, after 
some editing make complained about not finding lmlmk, whatever that is. 
If that's all that I would need to build it successfully, where would I get 

I also tried FranTk, doesn't look bad either, but has ghc -version 4.04 
hardwired, imports IOExts, which I think would have to be replaced with 
GHC.Exts, and Addr, which I have no clue what it should be now, anyway, it 
seems pre-hierarchical-libraries, which would mean a lot of editing the 

So, since Fudgets does work in principle,
- which version should I use and where do I get it?
- what else would I have to download to get it to build?
- in case it isn't straightforward, how to build it?

I have a linux machine with ghc-6.4.1 and hugs, no HBC, NHC, JHC,..., no 
GTk2hs (would I need that?).
