I did that, and it got me a bit further.  Now ghc-inplace dumps core
compiling Language/Haskell/Syntax.hs:

==fptools== make way=p all;
PWD = /home/shinobi/build/fptools/libraries/haskell-src
../../ghc/compiler/ghc-inplace -H32m -O -fasm -W
-fno-warn-unused-matches -fwarn-unused-imports -ignore-package
haskell-src   -package base -fgenerics -hisuf p_hi -hcsuf p_hc -osuf
p_o -prof   -c Language/Haskell/Syntax.hs -o
Language/Haskell/Syntax.p_o  -ohi Language/Haskell/Syntax.p_hi

    Warning: Module `Data.Generics.Instances' is imported, but nothing
from it is used
             (except perhaps instances visible in `Data.Generics.Instances')
make[3]: *** [Language/Haskell/Syntax.p_o] Killed
make[2]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/shinobi/build/fptools/libraries'
make: *** [build] Error 1

Any ideas?
