The ghc-make package
The ghc-make program can be used as a drop-in replacement for ghc. This program targets two use cases:
If a flag such as -j4 is passed, the modules will be compiled in parallel. If the available parallelism is greater than a factor of 3, the build will probably run faster.
If there is no work to do (i.e. the compiled files are up-to-date), the build will run faster, sometimes significantly so.
