[Haskell-cafe] Installing ghc on NFS ... stripping and upx'ing
executables, but what about .a/.so libs

This gets the ghc executable itself from 42mb down to 5.6mb, which helps a
lot on cruddy NFS installations.
For example the libHSghc-*, which are pretty huge (49-137mb). Are these
libraries that are used only by GHC for compilation? (Actually, I seem to
be able to compile simple files without them... so what are they used for?)
Any disadvantage to stripping them to save a factor of two?
