dynamically linked packages are less useful in the context of Debian, as
binaries linked against them will break in just about every upgrade.

But anyways in GHC-7.8, GHC will by default build dynamic libraries as
well and we will include them in the -dev package, so I suggest we just
wait until then. Whether they will be very useful remains to be seen...
