[SOLVED] xmonad failing to recompile config - libxext

I just changed my Xmonad config slightly and ran:

xmonad --recompile

and it put out the error:

> xmonad --recompile                                                                            ~
Error detected while loading xmonad configuration file: /home/llawwehttam/.xmonad/xmonad.hs
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Please check the file for errors.

xmonad: xmessage: executeFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

I've tried reinstalling xmonad which gave me the error:

> sudo pacman -S xmonad                                                                         ~

Reinstalling xmonad-contrib spits out the same warnings.

I've also tried pacman -Rnc ing xmonad, ghc, xmonad-contrib etc... and reinstalling but I get the same problem.

Any ideas??

If not this may be push I need to try awesome or dwm.

EDIT: I should have probably mentioned, I'm on a 64bit system and use gcc-multilib and binutils-multilib.

EDIT2:

/usr/lib32/libXxf86vm.so.1
/usr/lib32/libXxf86vm.so.1.0.0

EDIT3:

Solved!!!!

Something got broken somewhere so I reinstalled libxext and lib32-libext from the aur and it seems to work fine now.
