[Haskell-cafe] anyone else driven mad by trying to setup a gmp free version of haskell platform?

i would really like to be able to ship haskell based linux binaries,
but the gmp dependency makes it virtually impossible.  so what version
of host os, host ghc, and haskell-platform sources are known to build
a working compiler?

any reason why the dependency on gmp is static?  are the interfaces
between versions actually different?  or can we build a version fo the
compiler that loads the library via dlopen on demand?
