problem compiling an older Haskell program with GHC 6.6.1

I am trying to compile paradox 1.0, an older (GHC 5) Haskell program,
with GHC 6.6.1 (the Solaris 10 / x86 binary distribution).
in case anyone else wants to try it, I put the paradox source code at
in the Makefile, I deleted "-package lang" from HFLAGS, and added "-v" to it.
then I typed "make". I got the following error message:
Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 6.6.1, for Haskell 98, compiled by GHC version 6.6.1
Using package config file: /usr/local/lib/ghc-6.6.1/package.conf
wired-in package base mapped to base-2.1.1
wired-in package rts mapped to rts-1.0
wired-in package haskell98 mapped to haskell98-1.0
wired-in package template-haskell mapped to template-haskell-2.1

Created temporary directory: /tmp/ghc13306_0
*** Chasing dependencies:
Could not find module `Data.FiniteMap':
*** Deleting temp files:
*** Deleting temp dirs:
make: *** [depend.mak] Error 1
is this a backwards-compatibility issue between GHC 6.6.1 and older
versions of GHC? is there a simple workaround?
I can't easily use an older version of GHC, because I don't see binary
distributions of older versions of GHC for Solaris x86.
any advice would be greatly appreciated.
