Ah, yes. This is because I want to build hIDE. The hIDE readme suggested 
to use http://scannedinavian.com/~lemmih/hs-plugins, but scannedinavian 
seems to be dead. Anyway, in the meantime the suggestion has been 
fixed, it now points to http://darcs.haskell.org/~lemmih/hs-plugins 
which I just downloaded. So, maybe all troubles go away now.

I'll try the version above and see what I get. If it doesn't work, I'll 
try copying the Typeable.h file from somewhere.

Many thanks!
