On Vista gcc doesn't set the library prefixes correctly, which is why we've had 
to add the workaround to GHC to modify PATH before invoking gcc, and why you 
have to modify PATH by hand when building GHC on Vista.  See: 

So perhaps the problem is as in your previous message, that gcc is being invoked 
from a different drive?  Monique?
