Ah, ok.  Well, the gmp library directory is indeed listed there.  But
what exactly is ghc supposed to do with it?  From the behavior I'm
seeing, it looks like it passes -L<dir> to the linker, but not
-Xlinker -R<dir>.  pwd gets compiled and linked just fine; it only
complains when it runs.  The *dynamic* linker can't find,
since it isn't in a systemwide library directory, and pwd wasn't
linked with -Xlinker -R<dir>.
