Hi Chris

I don't know what's going on there, are you using the Windows CLI and
then working with GHC's mingw?

GHC (and thus the Haskell Platform) does ship with a minimal version
of MinGW - includes files, static libraries, gcc, linker etc. - as GHC
needs these pieces in its tool chain, and it means you can use GHC
with the regular Windows CLI. For 'real work' though, you want to be
using a full MSYS / MinGW installation and the MSYS Bash shell.
