It seems that the testing version of haskell-x11-xft requires the non-testing version of haskell-x11.
Further, installing xmonad-contrib from testing seems to want to install the non-testing version of xmonad and haskell-x11-xft.
It seems to be one very large circle which I can't resolve.
So a pacman -Syu gives me:
warning: cannot resolve "haskell-x11=18.104.22.168-2", a dependency of "haskell-x11-xft"
warning: cannot resolve "haskell-x11=22.214.171.124-2", a dependency of "xmonad"
:: The following packages cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
Do you want to skip the above packages for this upgrade? [y/N] u
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: haskell-x11-xft: requires haskell-x11=126.96.36.199-2
:: xmonad: requires haskell-x11=188.8.131.52-2
Not sure if I've done something wrong or I'm being stupid.

You can upgrade haskell-x11-xft and xmonad with;
# pacman -Syud --ignore haskell-x11
I too encountered what seemed to be a dependency loop, so used -d --nodeps option to skip the version check. Checking the Package repo shows that haskell-x11 is also flagged out of date, until things have been updated in the repo's you will see an error during update unless you
