You have to install gtk2 not 1. I wonder how you got past configure that
way. Also the gcc command shown above is missing all important -I
directives again suggesting configure didn't finish properly.

You're automake is too old. You'd better upgrade to 1.7.2.

You probably have to do a make distclean before running and
you have to make sure autogen finishes successfully. 

So, my suggestion:

* make sure gtk2 and gtk2-dev are installed, as well as libxml2(-dev)
* make distclean
* export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
(if you installed xfce4 libs in /usr/local)
* ./ && make
