I get the same removeFile error on ./doc/IVME.xls using the original
build mentioned above, and several builds from today with the latest
patches.  I tried combinations of pthreads/WIN32THREADS, with/without
curl linked in, etc and still can't get a working build... maybe there
is something wrong with my environment?  I'm using ghc 6.2.1, curl
7.11.1, and zlib 1.2.1.

Interestingly enough this build works fine for me, no errors.
