[Haskell-cafe] Fail to install SDL with Cabal

I'm trying to install SDL through Cabal -- I don't know another way to 
install it. However, I'm getting this:

setup.exe: The package has a './configure' script. This requires a Unix
compatibility toolchain such as MinGW+MSYS or Cygwin.
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
SDL-0.5.10 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
exit: ExitFailure 1

I have MinGW and MSYS, so I don't understand why I'm having this 
problem. Do I need to set something special up so that Cabal can access 
their tools?
