Hi Raphael,
Aattached a patch that compiles correctly with libxfce4ui on your xfce bug,

I tested it compiling with rpmbuild on fedora 20. Note that the patch
seems a big due changes by vala. But I think is correct.

p.s: Send it before here, but was rejected by the attachment size. hehe. :S

>>> 1. libxfcegui4 doesn't build against 4.12. This is due to some

>> xfce4-modemlights-plugin
>> xfce4-cellmodem-plugin
>> xfce4-radio-plugin
>> xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin
>> xfce4-smartbookmark-plugin
>> xfce4-wmdock-plugin
>> xfce4-notes-plugin
>> xfbib
