I just realize I have misunderstood your question, and I would like to
clarify: I don't think the problem was a lack of recompilation of
modules in xmonad. Rather, X11-extras failed to export these three
required symbols (as I could verify with a bit of nm). So the problem
was with X11-extras rather than xmonad.

Straight build from the hackage package:
X11-extras-0.4.bak vincent$ nm dist/build/libHSX11-extras-0.4.a | grep 
X11-extras-0.4.bak vincent$

from darcs, with autoreconf:
vincent-kraeutlers-computer-2:~/haskell/X11-extras vincent$ !nm
nm dist/build/libHSX11-extras-0.4.a | grep  State
00029e48 D
0001c4f0 T _X11zmextraszm0zi4_GraphicsziX11ziXlibziExtras_iconicState_info
0001c4e8 t
00029e58 D
0001c550 T _X11zmextraszm0zi4_GraphicsziX11ziXlibziExtras_normalState_info
0001c548 t
00029690 D

Kind regards,
