We run Solaris + gcc 2.95.3. The exact error message looks like this:

Prelude> :set -package satnik
Loading package satnik ... linking ...
unknown symbol `__builtin_new'
ghc-5.04.1: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC version 5.04.1):
        can't load package `satnik'

Please report it as a compiler bug to glasgow-haskell-bugs@haskell.org,
or http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghc/.

... which to me seems like it cannot find new.
