Stack does have a notion of a global project, which it uses if you're not
in a project directory. The error message you received:

  Error: While constructing the build plan, the following exceptions
  were encountered:

  In the dependencies for xmonad-contrib-0.13:
      X11-xft must match >=0.2, but the stack configuration has no
      specified version (latest applicable is 0.3.1)

  Recommended action: try adding the following to your extra-deps in
  - X11-xft-0.3.1

tells you how to make X11-xft-0.3.1 available to the global project, which
should allow you to install xmonad-contrib into this global package.
