The trouble is I'm continually rebuilding on my machine, and this has 
worked before, so something must have changed to break it.
All the rest of xfce4 CVS can build (apart from xffm which I suspect is 
a similar problem), so I think this is a breakage.
It's not really feasable to move around the 4.0 builds which are 
installed by RPM, I'm sure fixing this isn't too hard...
