You don't need to change the .cabal file, if you specify the paths to the
libraries and header files in environment variables, see:

If there are DLLs missing, you can find out which, using cygcheck from the  
Cygwin project. Note, that you will get problems if you have both MinGW  
and Cygwin in your search path; it is best to specify the full path to  
cygcheck.exe, or copy cygcheck.exe to some location in the search path.
