You've actually got that a bit backwards. GHC, Curl and all the
other things you are complaining about are all pieces of software
that started life on Unix and just so happen to be able to (if
you're luck) compile on windows.

What you need is not a Unix emaulator, but the build tools that
are used on Unix but on windows.
