It does work, just make sure you're using a sufficiently new version
of Wine, git or a development version from http://winehq.org/download

Older versions had a bug which broke cabal install, but I submitted a
patch for that.  What doesn't work is the installer for cygwin if you
require that, otherwise msys-git works fine for providing a bash to
run configure scripts, so long as you install mingw and update your
path, things will work pretty much the same as Windows.
