Cabal won't configure on Vista

As I posted in ticket #360
(, the latest Cabal
on hackage won't configure on Vista. Using GHC 6.8.3, when I run the
"configure" command, I get this error:

"During interactive linking, GHCi couldn't find the following symbol:

SHGetFolderPathA at 20

This may be due to you not asking GHCi to load extra object files,
archives or DLLs needed by your current session. Restart GHCi,
specifying the missing library using the -L/path/to/object/dir and
-lmissinglibname flags, or simply by naming the relevant files on the
GHCi command line"

Any ideas?
