OK, so not everything is that bad. Benchmarking compilation of GHC
7.10.1 ghc-cabal tool reveals:
GHC 7.6.3: ~12 minutes
GHC 7.10.1: ~24 minutes
GHC 8.0.1 RC2: ~14 minutes
Please note that GHC 7.6.3 compiles 89 files while GHC 7.10.1 and 8.0.1
RC2 compile 90 files. Test done on the same x-gene board like the tests
above for the reference...
