the flags that we pass to GHC for most tests are set in config/ghc:

config.compiler_always_flags = ['-fforce-recomp', '-dcore-lint', '-dcmm-lint',
                                '-dno-debug-output', '-no-user-package-conf', '-rtsopts']

These ought to be somewhere that we can get at them in a Makefile too.

    Define the GHC "compiler_always_flags" in make; fixes trac #5213

    We now pass the "always" flags to Makefile tests as well as python tests.
