It doesn't work for me either: Not in scope: `defaultTConf'. So it's not
something you're doing. The example is just out of date.

I didn't mention it earlier, but I searched both hayoo and hoogle for
"defaultTConf", but no luck. Whatever package contained it seems to be gone.

Can you describe what it is that you want to accomplish? From reading the
example, it looks like you just want to get tabs on your windows. If so,
something like this might work. Fair warning: I verified that it compiles, but I
haven't tested it.

import XMonad
import XMonad.Layout.Tabbed
import XMonad.Config.Desktop ( desktopConfig, desktopLayoutModifiers )

myLayouts = tabbed shrinkText defaultTheme ||| Full

main =
   xmonad $ desktopConfig
      layoutHook = desktopLayoutModifiers $ myLayouts
