it's a bug with the libxfce4mixer library install.  seems it's getting 
installed to /usr/lib/xfce4/modules/libxfce4mixer.0.0.0 - note the lack 
of a ".so" in there.  thus the linker can't find it.

were you installing from a release tarball, or CVS?  if from CVS, 
re-running autogen.sh should fix the problem.  you'll probably want to 
remove the bad libraries from /usr/lib/xfce4/modules.  i just noticed i 
ended up with the same thing happening with panel plugins on my latest 
update, as well as mcs plugins.  ugh.  what version of libtool are you 
$ libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.4.3 (1.922.2.111 2002/10/23 02:54:36)

if this is happening in a release tarball, then this is a bit of a 
problem... not sure what's causing it.
