mingw only recently has a package manager - which may be unofficial at
the moment.

It doesn't look like it has GD:

I'd expect the libraries exist in Cygwin's package repository.
However, binding Haskell to C libraries with Cygwin is difficult, I've
only had success when binding to pre-built DLLs like SDL.

Given the number of libraries involved, I'd look for an alternative to GD.
