[Haskell-cafe] can GHC build an executable from a C source file?

I'm checking if it possible to build an executable from C source files only.

As an example:

#include <stdio.h>

int main () {
     printf("hello world\n");
     return 0;

$ghc --make foo.c

However this only produces the object file, foo.o; it does not build the 
executable file.

What is the reason for this behaviour?
I have tested with GHC 6.8.2.

Thanks  Manlio
