Darcs is compiled with the glasgow haskell compiler. I think it was assufiled too who said in another thread that it's one of the best optimizing compilers, and that darcs is slow for other reasons.

I wouldn't go so far as that, but certainly I'd say to investigate
experience with a tree 3X as big as your current one, to give room to
grow while darcs does!

Agreed.If your project is nothing like the linux kernel darcs is a viable
