Dear GHC developers,

this is a bug report on  ghc-6.8.1-candidate.
The archive


contains a project for which `making' under  ghc-
produces a report of kind

... <many modules compiled>

GBasFld_.hs: ...

ghc- panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
  (GHC version for i386-unknown-linux):
        initC: srt_lbl

Please report this as a GHC bug:  http://www.haskell.org/ghc/reportabug

unzip it, please, and  see  install.txt.  
Then, see                   GBasFld_.hs,  

it is small, and it looks like ghc cannot compile it.
In  ghc-6.6.1,  this project works all right.

The project can easily be reduced to the size of about a single 
GBasFld_.hs  module (see  install.txt).
