Library Infrastructure, HaXml and Windows

I'm looking into testing the Library infrastructure software under Windows 
(initially using GHC), but am running into a hurdle regarding HaXml.  As 
far as I can tell, there is no script for building a Windows version of HaXml.

Looking at the HaXml kit it looks as if the easiest way to try and to this 
will be to find a suitable version of make (i.e. compatible with whatever 
is used to build the HaXml package), and use that in conjunction with the 
Makefiles supplied.

Can anyone point me at a suitable version of make to run on Windows (2K/XP)?

An alternative possibility might be to use GHC --make, but I'm not 
sufficiently familiar with the GHC package framework or the HaXml build 
structure to know if this is possible.  The HaXml release notes suggest it 
is, but I don't see how to do it.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?


BTW, I'm working with:
- GHC 6.2
- HaXML 1.10
