This may be due to you not asking GHCi to load extra object files,
archives or DLLs needed by your current session.  Restart GHCi, specifying
the missing library using the -L/path/to/object/dir and -lmissinglibname
flags, or simply by naming the relevant files on the GHCi command line.
Alternatively, this link failure might indicate a bug in GHCi.
If you suspect the latter, please send a bug report to:

After some googling, I couldn't find anything on the web related to the
problem, so posting to a Haskell mailing list seemed like an obvious next
step.  Since I'm a novice Haskell any help would be very much appreciated,

I'm using *ghc-6.8.3* on a *Windows XP Professional SP3*.
