Interesting. As far as I know, the ghc distribution for Windows already 
bundles some tools. So maybe network was a bad example? Or maybe it was 
hard to install even with the tools bundled.

I don't remember, because for the last couple of years, I have been 
happily using the Haskell Platform, so I stopped trying to install 
network from source.
