Unless you 'just want to' there is no reason for you to build Xfce from
Mdk 10.0 and 9.2 rpms for All Xfce-4.0.6 pkgs, as well as "goodies", are
available from my website.

As to changing themes that is Usually easily accomplished using the
'Settings Manager'

Not knowing the manner in which you installed the sources it may be that
you need to update your PATH environment.

It also my be that you are giving Xfce conflicting paths/option.

Mdk does not include or use the gtk-xfce-engine.
In 10.0 we use gtk-engines-0.12-8mdk gtk-themes-1.0-10mdk which includes
all available themes and engines
