-optl-s (strip) by default

Hello glasgow-haskell-users,

when GHC builds executable, it adds debug info by default. since this
info is useless for Haskell and since it significantly increases
executable size, will it be better to delete it by default by passing
-optl-s option to the linker?

another question: by adding " -optl-Xlinker -optl--large-address-aware"
to cmdline we will allow mingw32-compiled programs to use up to 4gb
of memory (instead of 2gb with current settings). now i have 4gb of
memory+vista64 so can test this setting if required

Best regards,
 Bulat                          mailto:Bulat.Ziganshin at gmail.com
