Are all parts really needed?

We use a version of libtool that is patched for being (or said to be)
compatible with Mac OS-X. Rerunning all this everytime the RPM is
rebuilt would break such things.

Another point is that adds another "rpmbuild" dependency on these tools.

I, however, don't see anything wrong with using the make flags you
mentionned. I clearly need a bit more of info.

Another point, did you try xfce4 on a x86_64 system?

I'm asking that because of that bug:

And I would like to know if you see any similar problem on x86_64.
