My distribution uses version 0.6 of xmonad. It's 'man' page says:

xmonad  is  customized by creating a custom Config.hs and (re)compiling 
the source code. After recompiling, ’restart’ is used to fork  the  new 
version, with changes reflected immediately."

But the point is that distributions sometimes do have to change some 
code. Configuration examples in documentation are not supposed to "just 
work". An automatic configuration, however, is. For instance, installing 
xmonad-config package would require xmonad-contrib, so that any 
generated configuration would find required modules.
