I am not familiar with that Leksah :-)

Seriously though here is one way to build it...

Install Haskell Platform

Use TakeOffGW (http://sourceforge.net/projects/takeoffgw/) to install :
 * pkg-config (in the Devel section of the installer)
 * gtksourceview (Libs)
 * gtksourceview-devel (Libs).
 * automake1.9-bin (Devel)
 * msys-bash-bin (MSYS)
 * msys-gawk-bin (MSYS)
 * msys-grep-bin (MSYS)
 * msys-sed-bin (MSYS)
 * msys-tar-bin (MSYS)

(Once GHC 6.14.1 is released, only the first three should be needed, as the rest are needed to build process-leksah).

Make sure the following are in your PATH :
 * <Haskell Platform>\mingw\bin
 * c:\mingw\i686-pc-mingw32\sys-root\mingw\bin (needed mainly for pkg-config)
 * <Your Home Folder>\AppData\Roaming\cabal\bin (will be needed for the gtk2hs build tools once they are installed)
 * c:\mingw\bin

Also add the following to your environment :
 * PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/pkgconfig

C:\>cabal install gtk2hs-buildtools
C:\>cabal install leksah

If you get stuck jump on IRC #leksah or email the leksah group.
