Comment #1 on issue 386 by vogt.adam: xmonad won't compile  
~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs if it's a symlink

I can't reproduce your issue (on ghc-6.12.1, x86_64 linux) with
the following:

$ cd ~/.xmonad
$ mv xmonad.hs config.hs
`xmonad.hs' -> `config.hs'
$ ln -s $HOME/.xmonad/config.hs $HOME/.xmonad/xmonad.hs
$ xmonad --recompile
$ xmonad --restart

Where my whole ~/.xmonad is symlinked to ~/conf/xmonad

Resolving symlinks is not done explicitly by xmonad: instead ghc
manages that part.

What ghc and arch do you have?

How did you make the symlink?
