[Haskell-cafe] Building Haskell stuff on Windows

Hi Arthur,

The correct steps to take are:

1) install GHC from the windows installer - trivial
2) install Gtk2hs from the windows installer

Unfortunately Gtk2hs hasn't been updated to work with GHC 6.8.1, so
step 2 will fail. The person who is going to do this is Duncan. He
usually breaks down and does this once people start complaining on the
mailing list.

Generally, if you have to install MinGW you can pretty much guarantee
that something somewhere is going to go wrong - not enough people test
this route to make it reliable.

Windows and Haskell is not a well travelled route, but if you stray of
the cuddly installer packages, it gets even worse.
