Description (last modified by kfrdbs)

A complete set of binaries for ghc and ghci under 
cygwin would be really nice.

Using the win32-version works, but is far from satisfying.

GHCI does not recognize the arrow keys, thus no 
command history (annoying errors instead) and I've 
heard others complain about problem with linking, since 
win32-ghc uses it's own gcc.

I tried to compile ghc myself, but gave up after a few 

Please compile it and include it in cygwin's auto-update

That would be really great! I tried to cross compile on a
Linux box for Cygwin, but didn't succeed either.

Are we sure we still want this? Mingw binaries are generally preferred on Windows, and the current ghc Windows build is quite usable.
