Of course, my modifications are for the case where building dynamic
executables is not the default way. But obviously if that becomes the
default option, adding it on all PKGBUILDs is the simplest thing.

Well, your second argument is pretty unbreakable :) As long as this is the
ghc default, static libraries are needed.
