Just to be sure, you have done:

   $ ./configure --enable-gladeui
   $ make
   $ sudo make install

That should (in theory) install the missing catalog files into the 
directory listed when you run:

   $ pkg-config --variable=catalogdir gladeui-1.0

Or it might wind up in `/usr/local/share/glade3/catalogs` (might be same 

If that doesn't work, you could try starting Glade like this:

   $ GLADE_CATALOG_SEARCH_PATH=/path/to/libxfce4ui/glade glade-3

Obviously replacing `/path/to` with the location where you cloned the 
libxfce4ui repository to.  That will cause Glade to look for the missing 
catalog file in the directory where you built libxfce4ui (assuming you 
did an in-tree build as described above).

Other than that, perhaps asking on #xfce-dev IRC channel or wait for an 
XFCE developer to respond here.

Good Luck,
