    3 We don't currently support dynamic-by-default on Windows. The issue is that, when building a dynamically linked library on Windows, there is no equivalent of elf's RPATH to tell the executable where its libraries are. This means that, unless the libraries have been installed to a global directory such as `c:/windows/system`, `ghc --make foo` would have to copy all the DLLs used to the current directory.

Clearly not satisfactory!
