   * Use -R flags for hsc2hs wherever we use -L flags on ELF platforms.
   This fixes use of hsc2hs in cases where things like libgmp
   is not on the system's dynamic linker path. It's ok to use
   rpath in the case of hsc2hs because the linked programs are
   run immediately and never installed.

   * Use -Wl,-R, for the gcc rpath flag.
   Apparently it was only gcc on Solaris that groks -R directly,
   so we have to use -Wl to pass it through to ld. Both GNU and
   Solaris ld grok -R, only GNU ld accepts -rpath.
