[Haskell-cafe] Problem linking with GHC 6.8.1

If you don't use the foreign function interface I think that you only need 
the -L option:

ghc --make -L/usr/local/lib/ghc-6.8.1/gmp -O2 -o edimail Main.hs

Something similar worked for me, but this new behavior is not very reasonable. 
Could it be a bug?
