Comment (by nominolo):

 The documentation for {{{ld}}} on Ubuntu reads:
      Delete all local symbols.
 That seems to be corresponding to
 [-z redlocsym]  reduce local syms in .symtab to a minimum
 Maybe it could even be omitted.  There actually is a FIXMe in
 Distrubution/Simple/GHC.hs line 348.  Could you try removing that line,
 rebuild Cabal and try again?
