Yes sorry, with my sleepy head I cloned the wrong branch. :-)
It doesn't need libpanelapplet.

Yes once I got the right source tree it compiled fine, it wasn't a big 
deal to install the few extra libraries it needed.

By the way, one issue I had to correct was to change the minimum 
automake version in "configure.ac to 1.11.6 because on wheezy it's still 
at 1.11.6. This did not affect the build process. I successfully 
compiled it and was able to run it.
