Compiling XFWM4 from Git

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been asked, but I've searched the forums and the wiki 
and I haven't found anything. I'm currently trying to compile XFWM4 from 
the Git repository, and I'm running into trouble. I've got all the 
latest devel files installed so the script works fine, but 
when I type 'make' I get an error stating that I'm missing a file called 
xfwm4-dialog_ui.h, which apparently should be built from the file 
settings-dialogs/ xfwm4-settings.c tries to include 
it, so I guess that it should be built before xfwm4-settings.c is 
compiled. Since I'm not seeing this issue on the Web either in the Xfce 
forums/wiki or elsewhere, I'm inclined to think I'm doing something 
wrong on my system. I'm running Xfce 4.10 on OpenSuSE 12.2, and I'm 
compiling against the devel files included with OpenSuSE. Any guesses as 
to what's wrong? Could it be something in my setup?

Liam Brown.
