I decided to ask upstream whether the project was dead.  Response from 
B. Tarricone:

     Yes, it's dead.

I have quite a bit on my plate right now, and I've been experiencing a 
bug with 'mplayer' for most of 2009... so instead of wasting my time 
backtracing 'xfmedia' (just for the experience), I've decided to purge 
it and try debugging 'mplayer' instead.

I've already replaced my 'xfmedia' launcher with a launcher that runs 
xine with my playlist, so goodbye 'xfmedia'.  :-(

You might consider dropping it sooner than later, if it's not supported 
by anyone at all and starting to bitrot.
