Are somewhere GHC binaries for Cygwin available? I tried to cross
compile from Linux, but didn't succeed.
Maybe one want to answer me: ``Why is a cygwin port needed? There's
already a great MS W port!'', but:
* darcs, that I'm interested in, is available as Haskell sources.
* For I can't use cmd.exe ...
| CMD.EXE was started with '\\xxxxxxxxx\yyyy\zzzzzzz' as the current
| directory path. UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows
... I would like to use rxvt/bash instead.
* darcs record hangs when running in rxvt/bash while expecting
interactive user input.
* A person experienced in porting darcs to MS W recommended me to look
for a pure Cygwin port of GHC.
In a ``pure'' Cygwin port all system calls should go through the
Cygwin libraries, of course.
