#114: Cabal can't find ar.exe on Windows.

 The command `runhaskell setup build` fails with `setup: ar is required but
 it could not be found.`  The directory ar.exe is in isn't on the path, and
 adding it to the path fixes the problem, but relying on ar.exe being in
 the path could cause problems with separate MinGW installations.
