That would be because the parsec library contains the correct invocation
already, but above you are telling the linker to look for libHSrts.{so,a}
with the explicit -l option. You would need to change it to

Perhaps ghc needs an option to include the correct runtime support
libraries in this case; certainly, having to specify all of those in the
build command is ugly and fragile even without mangled shared object names.
