[Haskell-cafe] sdl-mixer loading issue

I am trying to use the SDL-mixer bindings to play wav files. I've hit
a wierd error and I can't figure out how to solve it:

Prelude> import Graphics.UI.SDL.Mixer.Music
Prelude Graphics.UI.SDL.Mixer.Music> loadMUS "test.wav"
Loading package SDL-0.5.4 ... linking ... done.
Loading package SDL-mixer-0.5.2 ... linking ... <interactive>:
unknown symbol `Mix_LoadWAV'
ghc-6.8.2: unable to load package `SDL-mixer-0.5.2'

I've looked up the source code; Mix_LoadWAV seems to be #defined, so I
suspect it's some kind of library path issue but I don't grok the
whole system well enough to figure it out; maybe someone could point
me in the right direction?

Have the issue now on Ubuntu 8.04 and previously had the same issue
when I tested it on a FreeBSD box. I did install all of the
"libsdl-*-dev" in the Ubuntu repo.
