Not much more details to give.  You edit the cabal file and remove the 
unix dependency.  You'll also have to comment out the ft, runplugs, check 
and smallcheck sections (these use some unix-specific tricks to limit how 
long an external program runs for.  you could hack them out but then bot 
users could cause long-running processes to be executed). If you have the 
rest of the dependencies (ie. zlib and hs-plugins) it'll build just fine 
as-is.  You can neuter the zlib bits and remove the zlib dependency if you 
really dont feel like building that.

Make sure you follow the gist of the "build" script.  There's more to 
build than just what the cabal file specifies...
