I am trying to build ParseP on the latest ghc, and i am getting this error:

    Could not find module `Data.ByteString.Char8':
      it is a member of package bytestring-, which is hidden

what does "hidden" mean?  why does this work in ghci

> import Data.ByteString
> import Data.ByteString.Char8

without any problems
