something is seriously wrong here

Playing with a Haskell compiler:
lulu:~/hs% cat test.hs
module Main where

main :: IO ()
main = do putStr "ok\n"
lulu:~/hs% time ghc test.hs
ghc test.hs  2.61s user 0.67s system 99% cpu 3.283 total
2.6 seconds to compile a three line program!?
lulu:~/hs% ./a.out 
lulu:~/hs% ls -l a.out 
-rwxr-xr-x    1 martine  martine   4741690 2004-04-14 11:55 a.out
And the executable is 4.7mb.
