Heh, I was finagling with this yesterday for different reasons (Arch
removed static boot libs from GHC).  I found that there's a
pc_DYNAMIC_BY_DEFAULT flag in /usr/lib/ghc-*.*.*/platformConstants which
turns on -dynamic by default.  I can't say if this will break anything
(Cabal in particular) though, given that "DynamicByDefault" does not
seem to have received much dev attention in recent years.
