Thunar builds fine Xfdesktop does not.

my statement as somones FUBAR were not ment to be degetory to anyone
as i will sometimes do this when writing programs my self.  I
apologize if it was.  And sorry for my spelling but it happens
sometimes when i get busy around here.  And as far as the statment
somone needs to fix it well yes thats true and somone created a bug
report but you should merge this into the main package AKA the
installer so that it just doesent continue to fail over and over and
gives a message about dbus.  and yes i relize this is a free project
with volenteers.   I would suggest usiing something other then dbus
tho for whatever your trying to do.  Unless you have it as a
distrobution its very cryptic on there page on how to get it installed
and working so that dbus-glib builds properly.  Im not sure if your
solution posted here will solve the issue that im havinig but ill try
