It looks like I solved the problem and it was something obvious as it 
always is when you hit stupid issues like this. The build process for 
xfce is slightly different than what I am using to build the gnome panel 

For the gnome applet I use one source file to include all other source 
and header files.

In xfce it appears, after having looked over various plugin source 
trees, each source file includes the necessary headers, however none of 
the source files include other source files.

My fix was to not include any other source files at all and change each 
source file to include the header files.
