Aye, it builds fine under MinGW.

I built and installed PCRE (c & c++ library) from the source
(./configure, make, make install), though I think there is a package
available on the msys / MinGW repository.

Then I installed pcre-light via runhaskell Setup ... rather than cabal install.

The source build of the C library puts the headers in
C:\msys\1.0\local\include and the libs in C:\msys\1.0\local\lib so the
runhaskell commands were (remembering that runhaskell on Windows takes
directory names with double win-slash):

$ runhaskell Setup.lhs configure

$ runhaskell Setup.lhs build

$ runhaskell Setup.lhs install

Best wishes
