Ah, good, English isn't my native tongue so I'm aware I sometimes
express myself clumsily.

IMNSHO the Leksah Cabal file clearly is the culprit here.  I
personally think that Cabal files uploaded to Hackage shouldn't turn
on anything like profiling, shared libs etc.  They should configure
the bare minimum.  It should be left to packagers (e.g. ArchHaskell)
to turn on stuff like profiling and shared libs if that's suitable.

I invented the term Object-Oriented, and I can tell you I did not have
C++ in mind.
