  * GHC 7.2+ no longer generates _stub.o files
  So stop looking for them. This could otherwise cause problems if one
  switches ghc version without cleaning the build dir since we'll pick
  up the old _stub.o files and end up with duplicate linker symbols.

    M ./cabal/Distribution/Simple/GHC.hs -3 +7
