Right. Like that.

So now we have Don's timings for the Haskell program on his PC, Scott's 
timings for the C program on his PC, and the shootout's timings for a 
no-op Haskell program on their PC. I think what I need to do here is run 
a set of timings all on the same PC! ;-)

I'll probably use my laptop. It has SuSE Linux, so it should also have a 
C compiler. (Or if it doesn't, I can easily get one. But I'm pretty sure 
GHC pulls it in as a dependency.)

While I'm here, can somebody tell me the correct command to get a time 
and peak RAM usage printout for a program?
