Yhc is not optimised for speed, and as such does not infer strictness information, and does not honour any specialise pragmas. If your program is time critical, using GHC would probably be a better bet.

Yhc is optimised for small size useage, and should require less heap space than other compilers. There are no space optimisations that can be made that will help Yhc, beyond those which are useful for all Haskell compilers.
