Thanks for all your responses.

I summarize the discussion:

I can define the following with xmodmap:
   keycode 117 = Pointer_Button3
which *only* works when I also enable the
mouse-keys. This is kind of annoying, since
I don't need the numberic-pad to emulate
the mouse; just want key 117 to do a
right-mouse-click (similar to MS-Windows).

However, when I enable the mouse-keys, then
the numeric-pad becomes useless, no matter what
I do with the Num-Lock key. Is this a bug?
I suppose the Num-Lock toggle should still
work after enabling the mouse-keys. Right?

I wonder whether this is a missing feature
in XFCE, or if this is impossible altogether
due to intrinsics of X11....
