This is easy to fix. Just take libcurl.dll from darcs for windows
binary distribution and put it in ghc\gcc-lib, then take the curl
headers directory (from any libcurl binary distribution for windows)
and put it in ghc\gcc-lib\include.

If you have issues finding it, I can email you a zip file with it.

The library must be in a directory within the path too, or in the
executable directory, otherwise it won't start.

If you need to compile without curl, then just add -f-curl to the cabal script.
