ghc low-level code optimization cannot be compared with best modern C
compilers that's result of 20 years of optimization. ghc generates
machine code in rather simple idiomatic way, so it should be compared
to non-optimizing C compiler

another haskell compiler, jhc, generates idiomatic C code, that
therefore can be compiled by gcc to efficient machine code. but
overall jhc is pretty experimental compiler ATM
