This kind of thing is generally the result of building in the wrong  
order.  Can you try cleaning, re-building, and installing, in order:

1. X11
2. xmonad
3. xmonad-contrib
4. xmonad.hs (cleaning involves taking out any .o's/.hi's from .xmonad  
and .xmonad/lib)

and then let us know if the problem persists?  If so,  
~/.Xsession-errors, ~/.xmonad/xmonad.errors, or the output of xmonad  
itself may give more information as well, so please send those.
