Hello, I've installed Cabal and cabal-install 1.16 (which required
network) on a new GHC 7.6.1 install and everything went well, except
now when building a package requiring network I get:

Loading package network- ... ghc.exe: Unknown PEi386 section name `.idata
$4' (while processing: c:/ghc/ghc-7.6.1/mingw/lib\libws2_32.a)
ghc.exe: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
  (GHC version 7.6.1 for i386-unknown-mingw32):
        loadArchive "c:/ghc/ghc-7.6.1/mingw/lib\\libws2_32.a": failed

I have done something wrong while building network on my Windows XP
machine? What can I check?
