Since the sdk flags will be gone in ghc-7.0.3, re-adding them via the 
command-line will not pass them to cabal. Should not more flags be 
passed to cabal?

Will there be no chance to produce 10.5 code on 10.6 machines? Can 
dtrace (and its problems) be disabled on macs?

Modifying archives seems to scary:

Thanks Christian
