When GHC compiles a haskell program, it seems to statically link in
libgmp. I don't believe that libgmp's license has a static linking
exception. Therefore it would seem that the resulting haskell program
must be distributed only under the terms of the LGPL(either providing
providing the full source of your haskell program, or providing your
object files).

Or am I missing something?
