I have tried to install ghc-4.08.2 under Windows NT
and (as usal with the last few releases) failed.
As noted in the instructions, I have to compile
from the same file system (aka same disk) as ghc
is located on. I get an immediate warning that
DEFAULT_TMPDIR is not set to anything useful.
(Why should it be - I am only instructed to set TMPDIR ?)
Although files will compile they run without producing
any output (even Hello World). By the way,
I note that mingw from Cygwin has no version dated
20001111 but the only version before this January
is listed as 20001225 (yes really Christmas day).

Latest InstallShield seems to fix all these problems.
