> Variable definition clashes the import.

It means that you are importing a module that declares
something with the same name as one of your own definitions.

For example the prelude defines

   map f x =3D . . .

so if you attempt to define something called map, the names
would clash.

You can either choose a different name or use the
"qualified" import for whichever module defines the name
that clashes.
