 I have installed successfully the gtk package on Windows.

 GTK version: 2.16
 gtk package version: 0.12.0
 Haskell Platform version: 2010.2.0.0

 I have detailed my steps (very similar to Mark Shroyer steps) here:


 It seems that my error comes from an space in the path of gtk, and 
 later, from my version of the Haskell Platform (cabal version, I guess).

 In brief:
 1) Install Haskell Platform, version 2010.2.0.0.
 2) Download and unpack gtk all-in-one bundle, version 2.16. Path 
 without spaces.
 3) Add gtk/bin and mingw/bin to the PATH environment variable.
 4) Install gtk2hs-buildtools.
 5) Install gtk.

 And it works!
