I don't know if it's specific to GHC, but it's definitely a bug in
Functional MetaPost (although probably easy to fix).  For instance:

a) FMPPicture exports the data type 'Tension'
b) FMPMpsyntax does a restricted import of FMPPicture, not including
   'Tension', and reexports 'module FMPPicture'
c) FMPResolve imports and exports FMPMpsyntax
d) FMPCore imports FMPResolve and expects 'Tension' to be defined

The situation is a little more complicated, but I think any
reasonable interpretation would give an import problem.  The key
problem is in (b).

Unless this was some recent change in the report?

Probably; I'll try it out.  Thanks for the work!
