nativeGen: Fix string merging on Windows

D1290 places string constants in the `.rodata.str` section with `aMS`
section flags so that the linker can merge them. However, it seems that
ld doesn't understand these flags. It appears that `gcc
-fmerge-constants` uses the `dr` flags on Windows. Make GHC do the same.

Test Plan: Validate on Windows
