#398: better support for static linking
  Reporter:  duncan         |        Owner:         
      Type:  enhancement    |       Status:  new    
  Priority:  normal         |    Milestone:         
 Component:  Cabal library  |      Version:
  Severity:  normal         |     Keywords:         
Difficulty:  normal         |   Ghcversion:  6.8.3  
  Platform:                 |  
 Generating statically linked binaries on different platforms requires a
 bit of knowledge about what flags to pass to ghc. It would be nice to just
 be able to `cabal configure --enable-static-executable` or something and
 have that pass the extra `-optl-static` and whatever ghc options are

 If it's not possible to generate static binaries it should make some
 attempt at explaining why.
