I don't know if setContext is the proper/best way to do it, but it seems to 

import GHC
import GHC.Paths ( libdir )
import DynFlags ( defaultDynFlags )
import Module(stringToPackageId, mkModuleName)
import Data.Dynamic(fromDynamic)
import System.Environment
evalString s = 
    defaultErrorHandler defaultDynFlags $ do
      runGhc (Just libdir) $ do
        dflags <- getSessionDynFlags
        setSessionDynFlags dflags
        setContext [] [ (mkModule (stringToPackageId "base") (mkModuleName 
                        ,Nothing) ]

        dyn <- dynCompileExpr s
        return $ fromDynamic dyn

main = do
 (s:_) <- getArgs
 e <- evalString s
 putStrLn $ maybe "oops" id e
