[Haskell-cafe] MySQL and Haskell on Windows

cabal install hdbc-mysql almost works on windows, but errors because the
mysql_config command isn't part of the windows MySQL install.

Has anyone been able to get a Haskell interface to MySql going on
Windows, either directly or via odbc? 

cabal install haskelldb-hsql-odbc fails because it can't find an 'odbc'
library. There are any number of odbc dll's installed by the MySQL odbc
connector, but they all have slightly different names.

As always, a precompiled binary would be preferable but I'm happy to
compile stuff under Cygwin or MINGW if need be. 

Thanks in advance for your help.
