[Haskell-beginners] GHC compilation without using module Main

I got -main-is to work with a single Haskell file, but it seems to have
trouble with multiple files.
$ cat scriptedmain.hs
module ScriptedMain where
meaningOfLife :: Int
meaningOfLife = 42
main :: IO ()
main = putStrLn $ "Main: The meaning of life is " ++ show meaningOfLife
$ cat test.hs
module Test where
import ScriptedMain hiding (main)
main :: IO ()
main = putStrLn $ "Test: The meaning of life is " ++ show meaningOfLife
$ ghc -o scriptedmain -main-is ScriptedMain scriptedmain.hs
Main: The meaning of life is 42
$ ghc -o test -main-is Test.main test.hs scriptedmain.hs
compilation IS NOT required
ld: duplicate symbol _ZCMain_main_info in scriptedmain.o and test.o
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
