Ticket #3753 (new feature request)
Make ghci's -l option consistent with GNU ld's -l option

Currently, ghci accepts -l options of the format -lxyz. On Linux, this is treated as a request for libxyz.so. The GNU ld -l option is more flexible. It accepts either -lxyz or -l xyz. Also, it accepts -l:filename or -l :filename. When this form is used, the filename is not modified by prepending "lib" and appending ".so". I request that GNU ld's -l forms be accepted by ghci.
