The flag is not mentioned in the "using FFI in GHC" section, and only once elsewhere, in the overall flags section. It was rather confusing as to why ghc was choking on the import bit of "foreign import ...". Yes, it's only a one-time road-block for new users of FFI, but it's a bit annoying that it wasn't obvious that FFI features were only enabled when the -ffi flag is passed.
