    The Haskell Tool Stack

    If you really can't get anything to work, and don't want to give up on NixOS (I use it myself), you can try building XMonad with stack. Stack is a build tool for Haskell and it natively supports NixOS, so if you setup your XMonad Haskell project to require version 17 of xmonad, it can build it in a NixOS-friendly way. Unfortunately, this approach requires knowledge of both Nix and Haskell, so I'd only go down this route if nothing else works and you really don't want to give up.
