Xfce 4.18 dependencies versions

Hi Alistair,

If you want to contribute to Xfce-next even if your OS doesn't have the 
required libs, you could compile required libraries in custom location, 
it's not that hard, it just takes time.

If your contribution does not involve graphics or does not involve Xfce 
components interactions, you could also use a docker environment.

I ever wonder if it's possible (meaning simple enough) to build against 
flatpak libraries (because it's really easy to have a flatpak stack with 
recent Glib & co libraries)

My 2¢.
