[Haskell-cafe] Implementing a New primop

Alright, I wandered through some primtype issues, but I'm having another odd problem as I try to define my own primop.  I've followed what the various wiki pages have to offer (primarily http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/AddingNewPrimitiveOperations and http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Commentary/PrimOps) without success.  I even unraveled my PrimOp to be, basically, an exact copy of another PrimOp without luck.

The primop I'm attempting to add is now very, very simple and copies FloatAddOp exactly so there must be an additional file I have to modify before the primop is "completely" added.

primop   FloatVAddOp   "plusFloatVec#"      Dyadic            
   Float# -> Float# -> Float#
   with commutable = True

translateOp FloatVAddOp	= Just (MO_F_Add W32)

The compiler error is below.  I have the feeling that an interface is not being built somewhere … this must be a simple one but I can't find any references to this error anywhere … has anyone seen this one before?????
