You know that http://www.bagley.org/~doug/shootout/ is frozen, don't you?
For a current version look at http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/
The current version is fast but ugly. There was some comitee work on
Haskell mailing lists to make it prettier, but it didn't make to the
shootout yet.

For some reason the GHC implementation of count-words on the shootout
doesn't compile, perhaps because someone thought it would be a good
idea to give two -O options: -O3 -O2

BTW, do we care about such benchmarks? I am going to have some spare
time and I could work on Haskell solutions a bit, but I'm not sure it's
worth the hassle.

Best regards
