[haskell-llvm] some trouble getting started

Hi All,
I'm trying to figure out haskell-llvm. I intend to work through the
kaleidoscope tutorial in haskell but I'm starting off simple and got
stuck pretty much right away.
This Fibonacci code from the examples compiles with no problems:
<https://gist.github.com/945506/edce9f68beeedd6b90dc57463c2f2ddfb3ac25ed>
But when I change it to
<https://gist.github.com/945506/2ca13a3d06cc4e90416643293cc5208acbda5975>
I get the following compile errors:

Possible fix:
add an instance declaration for
(FunctionArgs
f (a -> b -> CodeGenFunction r1 Terminate) (CodeGenFunction r ()))
In the first argument of `($)', namely
`createFunction InternalLinkage'

==================================
These type errors are beyond me. If someone can give me an intuitive
explanation for why my change is not valid I would really appreciate
that.
Also, for all of the examples I see in the example dir it's known
ahead of time what the types of the LLVM expressions should be. Is it
necessary to drop down to the FFI API to generate code for a general
purpose language where the expression types will not be known ahead of
time or should I be able to accomplish that at the high level API?
Thanks
