What is xfce4-dev-tools?

The Xfce Development Tools are a set of scripts and m4/autoconf macros
that ease build system maintenance.


Release notes for 4.7.1

- Also support the newer AC_CONFIG_HEADERS macro.
- Add XDT_FEATURE_VISIBILITY to check for and enable symbol visibility
support (only useful for building libraries).
- Add XDT_FEATURE_LINKER_OPTS that checks for and enables useful linker
optimizations if supported.  This currently only checks for --as-needed
and -O1, but more may be added in the future.
  * Add new 'minimum' debug level, which is now the default and behaves
similarly to the old 'no' default.
  * Debug level 'no' disables many glib/gobject-related checks and
asserts (this is not really recommended).
  * Debug level 'full' disables code optimization.
  * The macro now takes an argument to specify the default debug level.
