make distcheck failing for pretty much everyone

I'm working on moving svn snapshot generation to mocha -- finally
managed to install the x11/gtk stack in my home directory there.
Unfortunately, it looks like a number of modules don't pass 'make
distcheck', possibly due to an intltool bug.
The problem is that this syntax in configure.ac doesn't work:
AC_INIT([libxfcegui4], [libxfcegui4_version()], [xfce4-dev at xfce.org])
It appears to be fine with this:
AC_INIT([libxfcegui4], [libxfcegui4_version], [xfce4-dev at xfce.org])
(removed the parens). AFAIR, Benny added the paren syntax, tho they're
not really necessary.
Unless there are any objections, I'm going to start modifying all
modules in both the xfce and goodies repositories to remove any
problematic parens. It looks like libgui at least has some other
problems which are now fatal distcheck errors (like files with _("...")
strings that aren't in POTFILES), which I'll be fixing as well.
