Hi there,

it includes quite a bit more 'stuff' -- profiling libraries + a bunch of
tools that's needed by the backend on that platform.

To help you out a little bit, I've tar'ed up the profiling libraries
separate
from the main distribution tar bundle, which shaves off some 10M.
Available via http://haskell.org/ghc/dist/5.04.2/

To use, just unpack & go.
