Here is what I got so far with the package.

The reason autoreconf is not working seems to be that the m4 macros are 
not being shipped with the package nor they are being included in 
Makefile.am or configure.ac

After 'borrowing' the m4macros directory from xfce4-dev-tools and 
including the line ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4macros within Makefile.am, the 
autoreconf command was able to run completely.

After that, the build stopped with another error:

        make[4]: Entering directory 
        Makefile:925: *** unterminated variable reference.  Stop.
        make[4]: Leaving directory 
        make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
        make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/xfconf/xfconf-4.10.0/tests'
        make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
        make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/xfconf/xfconf-4.10.0'
        make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
        make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/xfconf/xfconf-4.10.0'
        dh_auto_build: make -j1 returned exit code 2
        make: *** [binary] Error 2

Which is being caused, for a reason I don't know, by the command below, 
found at line 16, into tests/Makefile.inc

        check_SCRIPTS = $(addsuffix .sh,$(check_PROGRAMS))

Removing such line will allow the package to build, so maybe there could 
be another way to do what the command was intended to?

This was as far as I could get for now.

Thanks and regards.
