When you compile XFCE, be sure to use the RIGHT gtk engines path. For example, in my box, I use :

   $ ./configure \
   > --enable-gtk-engine=/usr/X11R6/lib/gtk/themes/engines \
   > [ others options here ]

You can find the right gtk engines directory by checking it's content ;
there should have default themes libraries files :

- libnotif.so for the notif theme engine
- libraleight.so for the Raleigh theme engine
- libredmond.so for theredmond theme engine
- libpixmap.so for the pixmap theme engine
- libmetal.so for the metal theme engine

These file are provided by the gtk-engine package : just check the
listing of this package with your package manager to see where they are
or use "locate libnotif.so" (for example) if you have an updated locate
database to find the proper path.
