I've just checked Hackage - the "Curl" package (haskell) is a binding
to libcurl (c library).

It looks like MinGW / MSys is the best option - there are some notes
are written by Sigbjorn Finne (who wrote the Haskell binding) although
they are now quite old:


It looks like Sigbjorn, was cross compiling a MinGW build for libcurl
from Cygwin, instead I'd build under a proper installation of MinGW /
MSys. The bits of MinGW that are distributed with GHC aren't
sufficient for this - you will need a proper installing of MinGW /
