Right, there shouldn't be any conflict since ghc links
statically by default (dynlinking is still considered experimental
upstream though it may become default for Linux in 6.14 perhaps).

I just suggested the rebuilds as best practice. :)
And to avoid future FTBFS bugs, etc. :)

You should not need those Requires since they are for shared libs.
Rpm would generate them for you automatically: so they should be
redundant.  You could pass "-dynamic" to ghc if you want to
link to the shared libraries.

Thanks, Jens

ps Note also that ghc-utf8-string is also available and preferred in F13 now.
