You should turn the xfce4-wavelan-plugin into an external plugin (the
panel contains a file describing the difference between internal and
external plugins IIRC). Then in your Makefile.am:

plugindir = $(libexecdir)/xfce4/panel-plugins
plugin_PROGRAMS = xfce4-wavelan-plugin

xfce4_wavelan_plugin_CFLAGS = $(LIBXFCE4PANEL_CFLAGS)
xfce4_wavelan_plugin_LDFLAGS = $(LIBXFCE4PANEL_LIBS)

Check the xfce4-cpugraph-plugin as an example of how to setup the stuff
for an external plugin (it is a very simple plugin and was already
updated for 4.4).
