What does the following command show?

  $ pkg-config libxfce4mcs-client-1.0 --modversion

I'm no longer Debian user (Hamm was the last), so I'm not sure whether
they offer development package even `unstable'.

Yes, but the current SVN xfce4-panel never uses xfce4mcs-client,
libxfcegui4-1.0 (>= 4.3.5), libxfce4util-1.0 (>=4.3.0) are required,
however if you consider using SVN trunk, you'll have to install from
the first place (xfce4-dev-tools), you can know the build order from,


or try the following script (from Brian),
