Arch packager here.

Just want to update that by splitting out the static libs and the
compiler itself, the overhead went down to ~100MiB for ghc-libs (GHC
boot libs) in 8.2, and grew back to ~200MiB in 8.4/8.6.

Since Arch usually does not split devel things, I believe your
expectations are realistic with the further -dev part split.
