How hard is it to build hackage or stackage
with a profiled ghc? (Does it require ghc magic, or can I do it?)

obvious to whom? you mean sub-optimality is already known,
or that it would become obvious once the reports are there?

Even without profiling - does hackage
collect timing information from its automated builds?

What needs to be done to add timing information in places like ?
