External Core isn't currently working correctly in the HEAD. Aaron
Tomb was working on this, I know (as per mailing lists posts on
cvs-ghc from November and December), but I don't know if he still is.

glasgow-haskell-users is a better place to discuss this.

Your best bet if you want to be able to use External Core may be to
fix it yourself. I know that's what I had to do! But, people on
glasgow-haskell-users and cvs-ghc will probably be happy to discuss it
with you.
