[Haskell-cafe] Creating DLLs with GHC

I am having some difficulty with creating a dynamic link library using
GHC on windows XP.
I am attempting to follow the example in
though I have a binary build of ghc 6.5
My problem (I think) is that some of my Haskell source files link to an
external C library also contained in a DLL.
I generate my Haskell object files when I compile my Haskell executable.
I then attempt to use the object files in a ghc compiler statement like
ghc --mk-dll -o netsim.dll ExternLib.o ExternLib_stub.o dllNet.o src1.o
src1_stub.o src2.o -optl-lmatrixstack -optl-L"."
My external C library is in matrixstack.dll and it has a corresponding
static link stub library matrixstack.lib in the same directory as all
the sources. It has references in one of the sources (say src1.hs).
Unfortunately I get a host of undefined references to basically all the
functions in matrixstack.dll and also some undefined references of the form
Parsefile.o:ghc2996_0.hc:(.text+0x130): undefined reference to
Parsefile.o:ghc2996_0.hc:(.text+0x220): undefined reference to
Parsefile.o:ghc2996_0.hc:(.text+0x24a): undefined reference to
Parsefile.o:ghc2996_0.hc:(.text+0x29c): undefined reference to
This appears to be coming from unsatisfied references to
Text.ParserCombinators.Parsec, which I thought was a standard library.
I note that my stand alone haskell executable links just fine and runs
What am I missing to make this work?
