We may yet go back and turn DYNAMIC_GHC_PROGRAMS off by default, it has
yet to be decided. The worst situation would be to have to support
both, so I imagine once we've decided one way or the other we'll
deprecated the other method.
Is it just shortage of space, or is there anything else that pushes you
towards DYNAMIC_GHC_PROGRAMS=NO? Isn't disk space cheap?
