Yes, but then I wouldn't be able to find and fix the commands that are
missing SRC_HC_OPTS. :)  So I'm holding off on that for now.  Below is
a patch for the ones I've found so far.  With those changes, and
without setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, the build stops here:

Preprocessing library hpc-
dist-bootstrapping/build/Trace/Hpc/Reflect_hsc_make: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
running dist-bootstrapping/build/Trace/Hpc/Reflect_hsc_make failed
command was: dist-bootstrapping/build/Trace/Hpc/Reflect_hsc_make  >dist-bootstrapping/build/Trace/Hpc/Reflect.hs

My BUILD_FLAGS includes --ghc-option=-optl... and --ld-option=...
flags which would take care of it, if they were being used, so
apparently they're not.  libraries/hpc/Trace/Hpc/Reflect.hsc produces
which is compiled and linked to make
libraries/hpc/dist-bootstrapping/build/Trace/Hpc/Reflect_hsc_make.  Is
there anything I can add to the cabal-bin command line to inject
linker flags into that link command?
