AFAIK the current linker is meant to support Mach O, ELF and COFF,
which should cover almost every platform GHC is able to run on. Now,
it's not ideal that GHC maintains its own dynamic linker
implementation, but if someone has discovered a bugs with it (or any
other bug preventing TH from working) I'm sure GHC HQ would be
interested in knowing.
