If the Main module imports System.Environment, you can get this effect via

(there's withProgName too)

That seems to imply that the \* feature isn't working under Windows, so
none of the packages are available. Can you load Distribution.Simple?
(But it does work when built with MSYS+MinGW, as does HGL itself.)

You also need MSYSdtk. The commands to build winhugs aren't in the
Makefile yet. By hang, I mean it doesn't even create a window.

There's nothing in the Makefile, but I understand xsltproc can generate
it from the .xml files.
There's also the MSI packaging. Sigbjorn, are you there?
