Salut Xavier,

First, make sure you have a preoper GTK+-2.0 installation, including
glib, pango and atk.

Then you can retrieve the main packages from CVS using an anonymous
account :

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.xfce.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xfce login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.xfce.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xfce co
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.xfce.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xfce co
