The only time I have trouble with a Haskell library is when it
requires some foreign library that isn't Windows friendly. HSQL and yi
are two examples I remember from some time ago. However, many
libraries are just fine: HDBC, lhs2tex, hlint, for example.

The Haskell Platform has made this even simpler because I have a
compatible base that I know will work.
