hrm... I'm encounter a whole slew of problems getting gtk2hs to build now,

    Failed to load interface for `System.Glib.UTFString':
      Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.
make: *** [glib/System/Glib.o] Error 1

is the relevant message at the end. I think i'm going to call it a night
