Ticket #398 (new enhancement)
better support for static linking

Generating statically linked binaries on different platforms requires a bit of knowledge about what flags to pass to ghc. It would be nice to just be able to cabal configure --enable-static-executable or something and have that pass the extra -optl-static and whatever ghc options are required.
If it's not possible to generate static binaries it should make some attempt at explaining why.
