bytestring-in-basebytestring was part of the base library in ghc-6.6 days. The bytestring low level interface is in Data.ByteString.Internal and Data.Bytestring.Unsafe not Data.ByteString.BaseEnabledAutomatic

Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info

Haskell LLVM bindings

This package provides Haskell bindings for the popular LLVM compiler
infrastructure project.  If you don't know what LLVM is, the main LLVM
home page is here:

Package status - what to expect

This package is still under development.

The high level bindings are currently incomplete, so there are some
limits on what you can do.  Adding new functions is generally easy,
though, so don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

The high level interface is mostly safe, but the type system does not
protect against anything that can go wrong, so take care.
And, of course, there's no way to guarantee anything about the
generated code.
