Yes, Lennart Kolmodin was just investigating this problem for Gentoo and
came to a similar conclusion.
We can't pass all the cc-options to hsc2hs or cpphs, we'd have to filter
them which seems a bit ugly. The other ugly option is to add these flags
Anyone got a suggestion for what to do in the short term (ie the 1 week
'til the ghc & cabal release) ?
