is there a way to reduce linking and startup times? Linking a "Hello
World"-like wxHaskell program takes about 45 seconds and starting it up
5. While the former is still acceptable I guess, the latter is way too long.

I've noticed this too. For what I can gather, it's an issue with
wxwidgets 2.9 and/or wxcore-0.9, but I don't really have the time or
knowledge to debug it. It might have something to do with the build
configuration of 2.9. I built mine using these instructions.
when wx-0.13.2.1 (with wxwidgets 2.8) is used to build the examples,
the linking process takes few seconds at most and the programs start
instantly. I don't think there's any harm in using older version to
get started, but I'd like to know a solution for this too.
To install the old version I used wxPack binaries for 2.8 and
installed wxcore-0.13.2.1 separately. Env variables need to point to
all relevant wxwidgets2.8 files during compilation. Cabal install
wx-0.13.2.1 defaults to newest version of wxcore so you need to:
cabal unpack wx-0.13.2.1 (creates a folder inside the folder you're at)
edit wx.cabal to target wxcore-0.13.2.1 specifically (rather self
explanatory I think)
runhaskell.exe Setup.lhs configure
runhaskell.exe Setup.lhs build
runhaskell.exe Setup.lhs install
This might not be exactly correct. I'm just swinging from memory. When
compiling the applications, use wx-0.13.2.1 instead of wx.
