I have written an installer for WinHugs, which could easily be adapted to GHC.

The plus points of this are:

  • Entirely automated build - you can make a distribution using only zip and cat tools
  • Can make a windows installer from a Unix platform with ease
  • Can ship one installer, which can be opened by zip programs, for those with particular requirements.

Bug 916 is more general than this bug - this bug is just one option, that bug is the whole problem.
