Registerised GHC was never "portable".  Or if it was, it was well before
GHC6.  You just weren't aware of what was going on, and apparently built
yourself a fantasy world where GHC always produced perfectly portable ANSI
C code.

That's an unregisterised build.  It's still there, for portability reasons.
 It's not three times slower, or ten times slower; for many things, it's
several hundred times slower, or worse.  But I'm sure even that is not
justification for not having been designed specifically with your important
needs in mind.
