The following link gives reasons for not generating via C
Naturally a number of these are common lisp specific, however I think that
Haskell and GCC are quite semantically different, so using GCC might prevent
a lot of optimizations, that aren't possible in C, but would be in GHC.
The OCAML-OPT backend is supposed to produce i386 assembly that is
competitive with GCC. Maybe this could be ported to GHC?
