================================================================

I searched on google, it says some modules (e.g. SDL) requires a unix-shell to run the ./configure script. I do have Cygwin on the machine, but I installed GHC/Haskell Platform on the host machine (not on Cygwin). If I installed the SDL package inside cygwin using cabal, would cabal installs the SDL on the Cygwin environment or on the host machine? (i.e. can I use the resultant SDL-binding outside Cygwin?)
