How do I check the optimisation level of the built-in splitAt?
Is something other than -O2 giving me my speed increase?

It's hard to tell what optimisation level your libraries were compiled
with. The default setting is -O, but when building binary distributions we
usually set it explicitly to -O2. If you got your binary from another
source, they might have only used -O.
