trouble compiling plugins on Xubuntu Precise

I ran into trouble while trying to compile from source several Xfce
plugins (weather, screenshooter, cliplman). The trouble seems to boil
down to the way './autogen.sh' is being executed, but on my system it
fails reliably and I have no idea how to work around it. (Using
Xubuntu 12.04 Precise with automake 1.11.3 and Xfce 4.8.)
I've already posted on this issue with respect to the weather plugin
, but for clipman it gets worse:
xdt-autogen: The directory doc does not contain
the required files to run configure. See
http://wiki.xfce.org/documentation for more information.
>"/home/liv/Build/xfce4-clipman-plugin-1.2.3/autogen.sh" (12075) returned '1'
>autoreconf -i (12090)
autoreconf: `configure.ac' or `configure.in' is required
>autoreconf -i (12090) returned '1'
When I try to rerun the commands above nothing happens. I checked
http://wiki.xfce.org/documentation , but this specific issue doesn't
seem to be covered in either the FAQ or the building instructions.
Any ideas on what goes wrong and how to work around this? Regards
