Ah, I think it is probably just a failure to use the -cpp option on
the ghci commandline.  The error message isn't terribly helpful in
this regard, since it complains about being unable to find a module
that wasn't wanted anyway.  It might be more useful to complain that
a cpp # directive was found?
