I noticed some XFCE apps tend to require using 
`--enable-maintainer-mode` argument to the `configure` script in order 
to generate some of the sources which are not checked into VCS (though 
they are surely included in release tarballs).

exo-enum-types.h sounds like a file that would be generated by 
glib-mkenums utility.
