[Haskell-cafe] build-type: configure on windows

I'm having a few problems with cabals build-type "configure" on windows,
especially with the packages "curl" and "pcre-light". Both fail either with:
configure: error: curl libraries not found, so curl package cannot
cabal: Missing dependency on a foreign library:
* Missing C library: pcre
Both libraries (pcre3.dll and libcurl.dll) are in my PATH variable, and
I can build other non-haskell-applications which are using these via
mingws gcc compiler. But still, somehow cabal seems unable to find them.
Using the recommanded "--extra-include-dirs" and "--extra-lib-dirs"
won't help either. Or is cabal looking for different files than those
Can anyone help me on this? Did anyone manage to build curl/pcre-light
My current configuration is MinGW/msys with gcc 4.5, ghc 6.12.3,
cabal-install 0.8.2, cabal 188.8.131.52. libcurl.dll and pcre.dll are the
latest builds from the official webpages.
Thanks for any Help,
PS: Sorry for the previous (incomplete) mail.
