[Haskell] Problems compiling hs-plugins

Please, can anyone help me with this problem:

I just downloaded hs-plugins version 1.0-rc0. (BTW, the stable version 
is not accessible). I configure it (according to the README) and 
everything seems to be ok. However when I try to build it, I get:

aare: .../haskell/hs-plugins > ./Setup.lhs build
Setup.lhs: Warning: The field "hs-source-dir" is deprecated, please use 
Preprocessing library plugins-1.0...
Building plugins-1.0...
Chasing modules from: 
[ 1 of 24] Compiling AltData.Typeable ( src/AltData/Typeable.hs, 
dist/build/AltData/Typeable.o )

    parse error (possibly incorrect indentation)

Looking at the source reveals that src/AltData/Typeable.hs contains 
macro calls to generate instances for class Typeable<N>, e.g. 


However, I could not find any definition for these macros. Nor does the 
package docs mention what to install in order to get them.

Any ideas? Don?
