     4Warning. This page, although still useful, is somewhat out of date. There have been multiple forks in this space. We currently use [http://sourceforge.net/projects/msys2/ MSYS2] instead of [http://mingw.org/wiki/MSYS MSYS(1)] and [http://mingw-w64.org/ MinGW-W64] instead of the original [http://mingw.org/ MinGW]. And Cygwin is no longer supported for building GHC.

    37The build system is built around UNIX Makefiles. Because it's not native, the Windows situation for building GHC is a little confusing. This section tries to outline the situation for building GHC on Windows.
