libxfce4ui: dependency_libs links-not-existing-la 

line 358.

$ grep -n "^libxfce4ui" current.txt 
358:libxfce4ui: dependency_libs links-not-existing-la 


$ dpkg -c glade-xfce_4.8.0-2_amd64.deb |grep "\.la"

Yes, usually the .la file is in a -dev package, in your case it's in a module. The rest of the .la file is probably fine and necessary. The dependency_libs is not.

So this is probably a case where the .la file can be retained but even then, the dependency_libs setting still needs to be cleared. There are example commands on the Wiki page.
