You can configure it with -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local to put it
there, but unless your Xfce is located under /usr/local as well it won't
work. A quick check of the source code shows that the Xfce panel only
looks for plugins under LIBDIR/panel/plugins and LIBDIR/panel-plugins,
with LIBDIR determined when Xfce is compiled.
