I'm having the exact same build error on ghc-6.5 (visual haskell actually) on
windows.  I have no clue how to proceed which makes me sad because I was really
looking forward to using HDBC.  Maybe someone knows a work around?

I'm not on this list, yet, (sending this via gmane) so if you could CC to me
that would be great.
