I've tried building it, but failed since it inconditionally depends on
a new thing (keybinder) not packaged yet on OpenBSD. If possible, make
this dependency optional... and it could have been integrated with the
xfce keyboard shortcuts dialog instead of doing its own handling in
its corner.
Adding the dependency on libunique could be avoided too, since i think
this functionality is now provided by GtkApplication.

That said i'm really happy to see someone taking over development of
xfce4-mixer, it needed some love, so i'd be happy to test your git
branch once those dependency issues are "fixed".
