Misc minor changes to integrate GHC a little bit better on Win32 platforms. Specifically, the commit does the following (assuming you've configured fptools/ with the option --enable-minimal-unix-deps on a mingw platform): * when GHC uses System.system, it expects an MSDOS command processor to interpret the command. This implies that 'normal' UNIX shell utils will no longer be used, but substituted with MSDOS equivalents. * the GHC backend relies on gcc and perl to handle .s/.hc/.o/.a files. GHC will now assume that these all live in one 'tool directory', making it easier to bundle these backend tools with GHC. The upshot of these changes is that it is now possible for the user not to have to install cygwin prior to installing GHC (as the upcoming ghc-win32 binary release will prove).
