[Haskell-cafe] Re: regex-compat on latest Haskell Platform

I was assuming that regex would work properly with the latest Haskell
Platform so I haven't attempted to re-install it.

However as I mentioned above, attempting to compile a program that
uses regex fails with linker errors on my Windows XP machine.

Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?
