[Haskell-cafe] Virus alert while installing happstack

I tried to install happstack via "cabal install happstack" on my WinXP 
system. While installation progress, my anti-virus software (Avira 
AntiVir) warned me about dll_hsc_make.exe and files_hsc_make.exe to be a 
Trojan horse called "TR/Dropper.Gen". It's a bit confusing to get a 
virus alert while installing Haskell packages. Has anyone experienced 
this problem? And can I trust these files to be harmless?

Besh wishes,
