wxHaskell requires to use cygwin when building on Windows currently.
Because Cabal doesn't support binary distribution yet. If you want to
build wxHaskell yourself on Windows, you must install cygwin.

And I'm finding where causes this problem now.


Best Regards,

And there is a lot of incompatibility between cygwin and MSYS. We
don't care about that now.
