In Manjaro we ship our Xfce edition with Engrampa from the MATE project 
(which is a fork of Gnome's File-roller) compiled in such a way that 
there is no runtime dependency on MATE components (though there is 
*compile-time* dependency). Many Arch Xfce users also use this package 
as their thunar-archive-plugin solution.

It works very well.

If you want to look at the PKGBUILD (which shows the configure options 
used) and the thunar-archive-plugin script, you can click 'Download 
tarball' here:
