(CC'ing Debian Xfce Maintainers, since we merge this package from Debian).

The problem is that the configure script expects raw-thumbnailer to be
installed when you pass the --enable-raw flag (it doesn't even check for

checking for raw-thumbnailer... no
configure: error: Install raw-thumbnailer
(http://code.google.com/p/raw-thumbnailer) before enabling raw image
make: *** [config.status] Error 1

And thus the build fails. That's why it's disabled in the Debian/Ubuntu

I'm not an autotools guru, but I guess a possible fix would be to use
AC_MSG_WARN instead of AC_MSG_ERROR for raw-thumbnailer in configure.in,
so if raw-thumbnailer isn't present but dcraw is, the configure script
will still be happy.
