Binary bloat in 7.10

Very strange. If I download Cabal from hackage and build it with 'cabal
build' the bloat disappears.

cabal build:

18M     HSCabal-
21M     libHSCabal-


23M     HSCabal-
53M     libHSCabal-

This is my

SRC_HC_OPTS = -O -H64m
GhcRTSWays = thr
GhcHcOpts =
GhcLibWays = v

This is the same as I used for 7.8 without issue, except the addition of
GhcHcOpts (because 7.8 ignored the default).
