ghc API in platforms with no GHCi

The byte code interpreter (which hlint uses) has its own dynamic
linker to load binaries. I suppose the platforms that you listed this
is not supported and GHCi (or more precisely the part of GHCi that
requires the byte code interpreter) is not built. Specifically, the
following modules are not built:
I wonder whether TemplateHaskell is supported on those platforms,
since that uses the interpreter, AFAIK.

Push the envelope. Watch it bend.
