Why not do it the other way round:
#if __GLASGOW_HASKELL__ >= 604 || __NHC__ >= 118 || defined(__HUGS__)
-- Data.Map, if it is available
import Prelude hiding (lookup)
import Data.Map (Map, lookup, fromList)
-- otherwise, a very simple and inefficient implementation of a finite map
type Map k a = [(k,a)]
fromList :: [(k,a)] -> Map k a
fromList = id
-- Prelude.lookup :: k -> Map k a -> Maybe a
