[xmonad] Xinerama ld problem

Hello all,

I have just gotten xmonad installed and am very pleased with using it.
However, when trying to edit my xmonad.hs config file with a very vanilla
setup (
I receive the following error when issuing "xmonad --recompile".

Error detected while loading xmonad configuration file:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXinerama
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Please check the file for errors.

I definitely have xinerama installed because it works fine with other window
managers. Furthermore, it works just fine with xmonad as well (I can drag
windows from one screen to the other screen with no problem).

So anybody have any idea as to what's going on here?

Thank you so much for you time.

Eric Thomas
