Ticket #5447 (closed feature request: wontfix)
please build GHC for Linux that links against libgmp.so.4 or libgmp.so.10 (libgmp 5)
The ghc-7.2.1-x86_64-unknown-linux.tar.bz2 download currently provided (http://www.haskell.org/ghc/download_ghc_7_2_1) links against libgmp.so.3 . OpenSuSE has libgmp.so.4 and libgmp.so.10, so linking against either of those would make installation a bit simpler. Thanks in advance!
