#642: [ghc-6.12] support dynamic linking of executables
  Reporter:  juhp           |        Owner:           
      Type:  defect         |       Status:  new      
  Priority:  normal         |    Milestone:  Cabal-1.8
 Component:  Cabal library  |      Version:           
  Severity:  normal         |     Keywords:           
Difficulty:  unknown        |   Ghcversion:           
  Platform:  Linux          |  
 Currently Cabal does not support dynamical linking of executables against
 Haskell shared libraries.

 A workaround is to configure without profiling and pass
 "--ghc-option=-dynamic" to cabal configure.

 Configuring with -dynamic and -p links to cabal builds
 failing with not being able to find p_dyn libraries.

 [It would be nice if 1.8 could be added to the "Version" selector
 and 6.12.1 to the "GHC Version" list here in trac.]
