I just gave a few OpenGL/GLUT examples a try with the 2014.2.0.0
platform on Ubuntu 14.04.1 (x64), and things work nicely using plain
"ghci"  without any flags. I remember there were some threading issues
(OpenGL uses TLS), but obviously that's not the case anymore. Hmmm,
has something changed?

Anyway, I would be interested in any concrete problems, too.
