Try talking to GHC HQ about this, they probably have a reason to do this.

We do it because mingw does it:

$ tar -ztvf binutils-2.19.1-mingw32-bin.tar.gz | grep ar.exe
-rwxrwxrwx 0/0          562688 2009-02-03 13:10 bin/ar.exe
-rwxrwxrwx 0/0          562688 2009-02-03 13:10 mingw32/bin/ar.exe

so you'd need to raise it with them.
