[Thunar-dev] Compiling SVN libexo

It seems that Thunar SVN needs a more recent version of libexo from
SVN than I have. So, after some small tribulations pulling the
checkout [1] I began to built libexo.

Despite changing removing --nonet from xsltproc in
docs/reference/Makefile.am, xsltproc complains about being unable to
acquire the docbook DTD, during make. I also tried --novaid.
--disable-maintainer-mode to configure causes make to fail with:
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `exo-enum-types.c', needed by
`libexo_0_3_la-exo-enum-types.lo'.  Stop.
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [all] Error 2

I had to remove /docs/reference entirely to get libexo to build.

At this point Thunar built fine, and I'm looking over the jobs code now.

All I needed to do was watch Perfect Strangers."
