Viewing the types declared in GHC.Prim in local machine

I don't think Prim.hs exists (anymore).
Depending on how you installed GHC, you might have the Haddock doc files locally, which includes Prim.
Or, you can :browse GHC.Prim in GHCi.
Or, you can look at compiler/prelude/primops.txt.pp which generates the term-level definitions in Prim.
Or, you can look at compiler/prelude/TysPrim.hs which "generates" the type-level definitions in Prim.
I hope this helps!

Do I have to modify my Makefile somehow to generate these dummy types?
