Hi Andrew,

I had the same problem with ghc-6.8.1 and solved it by adding C:\ghc\ghc-
6.8.1\gcc-lib to my PATH variable in environment variables. A copy of
ld.exeis in this directory.

In ghc-6.6.1, ld.exe was in the same place and it was working out of the box
for me. I don't understand why it is not found any more with ghc-6.8.1.

Cheers,

Olivier.
