Try Cygwin? http://www.cygwin.com/

By the way, its nice to know how to get haskells opengl lib to use 
freeglut. Compile the Glut package from hackage.

I was in the same situation like you and wondered why ghc wont use the 
freeglut.dll. And why, when I renamed freeglut to glut32 a link error 
occured (or was it a runtime error when calling a freeglut specific 
function?). I thought freeglut can be used as a dropin for glut32.
