My understanding:

It was possible with ghc 6.8. It's not with 6.10. Duncan's managed to  
get it going at some point on Linux (I assume) with GHC HEAD (http://blog.well-typed.com/2009/05/buildings-plugins-as-haskell-shared-libs/ 
). I haven't been able to replicate that on either Mac or Linux, but  
getting HEAD working is always slightly iffy.

It does work with jhc rather nicely, but most libraries don't build  
with jhc, sadly.

If anyone's got it going, I'd be really keen to know.
