Well, it doesn't cause harm there, but by just defining ghc_CC_OPTS,
the .hc bootstrap compile passed, too (at least on my test building

Thanks. I'll probably run some comparision of the results with the
-I$(GHC_INCLUDE_DIR) at the top level makefile and in ghc/ghc.mk,
but I want to get the other stuff done (preparing an update of the
OpenBSD port and depending ports like darcs and xmonad) first.
One <arm/exec.h> to bind them all.
