No, but I used to (and sadly can't find it any more). I used to have a
script called ghcsetup which built GHC on Windows, and importantly
validated the setup was correct (the right gcc was first in the path
etc) and took actions to correct it.

I am sure there used to be a great web page on the GHC wiki, saying
the exact steps to build (written by Claus), but I can't find it any
more. Perhaps Claus knows where it has gone?

Thanks, Neil
