I'm too lazy to check the standard, so I'll just assume Hugs was
wrong.  I think the solution is to use "fromIntegral" instead.  GHCi
also has "fromInteger", although I'm not quite sure why we need this
in addition to "fromIntegral"?  (Possibly because it is a member of
Num, and it would break too much code to remove it)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
