I went back and called autoreconf, then wiped out the contents of the
dist/ dirs inside the repos (both for xmonad and X11-extras).  The I
configure, built, and installed X11-extras and xmonad.  Same behaviour
again, so I tried wiping out the install in /usr/local/lib/X11-extras
and did it all again, still same "single workspace across two screens"
thing going on ...
