new to haskell so perhaps I just don't understand what I'm looking at:

Shouldn't the /usr/bin/ar step use
rather than compile again to
Am I doing something wrong, or is this normal? If it is the norm, I'd
appreciate a link to where I can learn about why it's not doing what I'd
I'm hoping I might save my poor, slow laptop from a lot of hard thinking
