A Cygwin port of hmake?

Has anyone attempted / considered porting hmake to Cygwin?
I'd like to try HaXmL under ghc on Windows, but it seems to require
hmake to build.
I made a naieve attempt to configure and build hmake under Cygwin
myself, but the resulting Makefile tried to pass Cygwin-style
/cygdrive/c/... paths to ghc, which promptly choked. I made some
abortive attempts to hand-edit the Makefile.inc, but it then attempted
to create some directories above my current working directory, and I
eventually got lost trying to trace down the nested Makefile inclusions.
Before I invest more time in either porting hmake or writing a portable
Makefile for HaXmL, I thought I'd post here to see if anyone else had
already been down this road. If you have, please get in touch.
