Hi Olivier,

short version: 

xffm is not broken. It appears that someone has put broken header files
where they do not belong.

long version:

  Someone (not me, I hope) has installed header files into
$prefix/xfce4. Look at this from your log:


 With xfce_4.0.x, header files go into one of the following directories
beneath $prefix/xfce4:

 libxfce4mcs  libxfce4util  libxfcegui4  panel  xfce-mcs-manager

and 4.1 should follow suite keeping header files separate.

The problem you describe arises from the issue that xffm is including
$prefix/xfce4/icons.h instead of xffm/src/icons.h and:

$prefix/xfce4/icons.h is broken for gtk2-2. This is not an xffm file.

I think the problem file icons.h might be libxfcegui4 related. I'm not
