1) Some of the GHC programs contributed to the benchmarks game have problems with recent GHC releases

- meteor-contest #5 - Ambiguous occurrence `permutations'


- regex-dna #2 - Precedence parsing error


- reverse-complement #2 - parse error on input `->'


- reverse-complement #3 - Could not find module `Monad'


2) I noticed `-fvia-C` has now gone away and there were half-a-dozen programs that had been written to use `-fvia-C` so how might that effect performance of those programs?
