You should be able to find information on this in the haskell wiki
(www.haskell.org). Searching for "foreign" will probably bring it up.

You'll probably end up having to link a static library - GHC doesn't
yet produce dynamic libraries, though there is work in that area going
on right now. Look for the "Industrial Haskell Group" blog for more.
