Which probably isn't UTF-8. There must be an analogue of locale on Windows 
to check.

If it's unpacked, just cd into the package directory and do a

$ cabal install

there (optionally provide further command line args, but not the package 


$ runghc ./Setup.hs configure --user
$ runghc ./Setup.hs build
$ runghc ./Setup.hs install

If it's a .tar.gz, I don't know if cabal already supports installing those 
from a specified location (i.e., not from hackage or its cache).
