[Haskell-beginners] Installing hmatrix on OS X

Ooops. Cancel that --- I didn't get any errors on running "cabal
install", and "hmatrix-0.8.2.0" is listed in my ghc-pkg list.
However, on attempting to run the tests listed on:
i.e.: (in ghci):
> import Numeric.LinearAlgebra.Tests
> runTests 20
I get the error:
Loading package hmatrix-0.8.2.0 ... linking ... <interactive>:
unknown symbol `_zgemm_'
ghc: unable to load package `hmatrix-0.8.2.0'
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what's going on now?
