Here's a letter from someone who has next to no clue about what he is
doing so have patience and don't assume any knowledge when answering...

I'm trying to create a package for ghc. I've struggled quite a lot and
gotten this far:

(This is when invoking ghci -package yahu)

Loading package base ... linking ... done.
Loading package yahu ... linking ...
unknown symbol `__stginit_List_'
ghc-6.0.1: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC version 6.0.1):
        can't load package `yahu'

I'm surprised by this. Why do I get this error message? From the name of
the symbol I would expect that it can be found in package base but
aparently not... Please advice.
