Apply tweaks needed to let this compile: remove syn_map argument from typecheckExpr in HscMain, import PrelNum.fromInt to modules which use integer literals with -fno-implicit-prelude flag. It crashes later, on Directory.hs: ghc: panic! (the `impossible' happened): srtExpr I'm not sure if resolving numeric literals to top-level definitions of fromInt/fromInteger with -fno-implicit-prelude is a good idea. Using names from whatever module is called Prelude would be IMHO better, probably when -fglasgow-exts is given. Prel* modules themselves would import PrelNum as Prelude. Both schemes break for fromInt, which is non-standard and by default it's visible neither at the top level nor in the Prelude module. My proposal for dealing with it is as follows (assuming that fromInteger is taken from the module locally called Prelude instead of the top level): when the standard Prelude is used, take fromInt from PrelNum; when a Prelude replacement is used, use fromInt from it if available, otherwise use its fromInteger instead. That way Prelude replacements can ignore this non-standard extension and get the expected behavior, or they can also choose to use this extension (in a way compatible with Haskell implementations which allow to replace Prelude but don't have fromInt).
