Upstream xfce or autotools? I know there was talk of the latter going to fix
but I don't know the status or what the fix entails.

Most xfce packages have the following in debian/rules

ifneq "$(wildcard /usr/share/misc/config.sub)" ""
        cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.sub config.sub
ifneq "$(wildcard /usr/share/misc/config.guess)" ""
        cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.guess config.guess

and those two files in /usr/share/misc are installed by autotools-dev.

I may be missing something but for some reason or another we needed to
explicitely depend on autotools-dev
lest there are spurious autoconf diffs among package revisions.

You're right it's only libxfce4gui that uses xinerama, and also xfce-utils
which disables its use.
but for the former there's no libxinerama-dev build dependency listed in the
control file or xinerama
runtime dep listed here
http://packages.debian.org/testing/libs/libxfcegui4-3 (it is at version
4.2.2 still)
