ABI, but there is some non-determinism that was not completely
eradicated: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4012

Are you comparing a build of 7.4.1 bootstrapped with 7.4.1 with the
first build of 7.4.1 which was bootstrapped with 7.0.4? Then this is
what I observer and have been observing with the 7.0.4 series as well.
What happened back then was that building 7.4.1 with 7.4.1 again left
the ABIs stable, so the problem is bearable.

If you are indeed comparing two builds of GHC, both using 7.4.1 as the
bootstrapper, then things have become worse since 7.0.4 and we will have
to do lots of rebuilds :-(.
