 Replying to [comment:2 anonymous]:
 > This is not specific to the Haskell Platform installer. The problem is
 that curl uses a `./configure` script. The `./configure` scripts generally
 do not work on Windows unless you have mingw and MSYS installed and are
 running `cabal install` from within an MSYS shell.

 Understood.  My hope was simply that someone could build and include HXT
 or something in Haskell Platform so I can use it. :)
