(Assuming you mean -funbox-strict-fields; -funpack-strict-fields
doesn't appear in the ghc 6.6.1 makefile as far as I can see.)

As I said, I've tried the obvious things & they didn't make any
difference. Now I could go sprinkling $!, ! and seq around like
confetti but that seems like giving up really.
