-staticlib flag for building standalone static libraries producing very large libraries

Hi all,

Can anyone explain the following problem I'm having?

I'm currently writing a game in Haskell. When I produce a plain old
executable (for local testing) it's about 23M. However, when I create a
static lib using the -staticlib flag it is 54M.

Why the discrepancy?
