Have you noticed slow compiling with Haskell specifically?

I've only used swift at that size, but I've heard stories with all of those languages once you have a large code base.

I remember vaguely reading about how at a haskell conference people were basically cornering compiler maintainers about compile speed, but that was several years ago.

When I have to recompile, it's usually because I've only modified a few files, and it's usually really fast. I particularly enjoy that if I refactor things without actually making any changes in the way it works, GHC won't blink; it knows there's nothing to do.

My codebase is only a few thousand lines, though.

Yeah the codebases I'm talking about are something around 1 million lines over several apps, libraries, all of the tests and codegened models, mocks and network services.
