On powerpc-darwin, GHC has always passed -dynamic to the linker 
(otherwise, nothing would work at all). So I assume this is on 
powerpc-linux? If so, I don't see why the PPC should be any different 
from Intel in this respect. I cant test it now, but maybe I'll get 
around to having a short look at it tomorrow.
