	$ ghc -c Main.hs
	$ ghc -o ThisIsMyExecutable *.o

That is, compile Main.hs also into an .o file, /then/ link the whole
thing into an executable...

normally, one employs `make' for building programs with more than one
module, because it keeps track of dependencies (ghc -M *hs) etc. There
is a users-guide section on Makefiles for GHC, IIRC.
