Is there a trick to getting this installed? I have run the installer
in a Vista machine, both as user and admin, and the installation is
mostly successful, except that the packages are not registered with
ghc-6.10.4. Also, the first step of the install complains that "GHC
does not appear to be installed correctly, try reinstalling GHC
version 6.10.4. Setup found what appears to be a non-working
installation of GHC in ..."  What test does it apply to determine if
GHC is working or not?

It can run the gtk-demo, so it's not all bad, but I can't build
anything that uses it (like Yi).
