It is better to download 3.0.2 source code, because wxHaskell cannot  
handle wxWidgets 3.1 yet. Even better, use a wxInstall package[0]; if you  
want to install wxHaskell from source on your own disk, instead of from  
Hackage, do not run the Install.bat.

This file should have been generated by mingw32-make; if you use a  
wxInstall package, you have the right setup.h file.

I tried it, the method described at the HaskellWiki page[1] works for  
MinGHC as well.
