the menu editor reads the menu file itself, so that's not necessarily 
related.  try running xfdesktop from a terminal (kill it first) and see 
if there are any messages printed.  also make sure 
$prefix/lib/xfce4/modules/ exists.  if it's 
missing the .so exstension, you have a libtool problem - run xfdesktop's instead of configure.

set the TERMCMD environment variable before starting xfce.

i don't think so.

nope.  i'm not sure why this is needed, as you only need them in your 
homedir if you want to edit them.  IIRC, the menueditor will do that for 
you if needed (for menu.xml at least).
