The changelog for version 765272 claims

  * debian/rules:
    - call xdt-autogen before running configure to regenerate
      config.{guess,sub} and gain support for new architectures closes: 

However the package still FTBFS on arm64 and when I debdiff against the 
previous version I see no evidence that the change mentioned in the 
changelog was actually made.

Since we are now post-freeze bugs should be fixed in a minimal way and 
as such adding an autoreconf at this point would be frowned upon. As 
such for jessie I propose using the autotools_dev feature in dh to 
update config.sub and config.guess without autoreconfing.

While xfce4-notes-plugin has not been built on arm64 xfce4-goodies has 
and it's currently uninstable due to this package being missing, so we 
would really like to get this fixed.

A debdiff is attatched. If there is no maintainer response within a 
reasonable time a NMU is likely to follow.
