Well that was the crucial fact I needed. 6.8.1 is now built. ghci
doesn't work, it complains about an unknown symbol '_environ' in
HSbase- but I was able to rerun the timings for my code. WIth
-O2 the run time went from about 1.5s to 0.2s. With unsafeRead and
unsafeWrite that becomes 0.16s. I can start thinking about writing
lots of Fortran in Haskell now.

(Anyone have any idea what that missing symbol is about?)
