Agreed. That is the next step. 

If we don't mind losing the earliest history of the xfce4 effort we
could simply rm -Rf the old directories.

A build script is an another matter, entirely. Are we prepared to
maintain and support one? There are several floating around and we
probably all have our own scripts as well.

Perhaps a simple one, compiling in the correct order and passing all
arguments given on the command line to ./configure in all modules?

for m in $MODULES
( cd $m && ./configure $@ && make && make install ) || break
