I'll probably be doing one in F14 to get the latest upstream release, once
I get a bit of a lull. So there should be one before release.

I am pretty sure I had a build fail in F14 when I didn't list ghc-utf8-string
on a build requires. It didn't happen in F13 though.

I'll drop the reuires though if they get built automatically. And I'll
try out using -dynamic.

Thanks for the advice.
