This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10
development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Okay finally tested and reproduced this:

1) I installed f10 on a 256M guest vm
2) yum install ghc-gtk2hs
3) run top

For (2) package installs but the scripts take "forever" to finish: I suspect
the main culprit is libHSgtk.a (20M) -> HSgtk.so.  Currently it is using about
330M of swap...

(3) shows ld running and using about 357M of vm...

Maybe linking from source is more efficiency than relinking from .a?

Perhaps you could try running the "ghc-pkg update --auto-ghci-libs" part of the
install scripts (rpm -q --scripts ghc-gtk2hs) to confirm this?  I guess must be
the problem though.

Maybe we should just include the .o files in ghc-gtk2hs like we do for other
packages: these days 3MB is not considered that big...
