I applied a modified version of the patches for libxfce4util and xfce4-mixer. 
Esp. the patch for libxfce4util with the varargs stuff was a good thing, since 
before we had only support for gcc style varargs in macros. Now we have 
support for ISOC varargs, which is supported by far more compilers.
