It was always part of the plan to auto-generate Windows installers (and
ebuilds, and RPMs, etc. etc.) from Cabal packages, see the proposal:

That leaves Solaris out in the cold a bit, because they don't have any
kind of installer system at all.  However, you can still build from
source (./Setup.lhs configure; ./Setup.lhs build; ./Setup.lhs install),
it's not that hard.
