Unpacking the sources and doing fakeroot/debian/rules clean
and doing the same after a successful build shows that the following
files are removed the second time. And they are not rebuilt, since the
code for re-building them is commented out in xfce4-session/Makefile.

Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/scripts: xinitrc.in
Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/xfce4-session: xfsm-chooser-icon.h
Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/xfce4-session: xfsm-client-dbus.h
Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/xfce4-session: xfsm-manager-dbus.h
Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/xfce4-session: xfsm-marshal.c
Only in xfce4-session-4.12.1/xfce4-session : xfsm-marshal.h

Enabling MAINTAINER_MODE by removing NOCONFIGURE=1 from
override_dh_autoreconf and adding --enable-maintainer-mode to
override_dh_auto_configure in debian/rules makes the build fail with:

make[3]: Entering directory '/home/.../xfce4-session-4.12.1/settings'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target 'xfce4-session-marshal.list', needed
by 'xfce4-session-marshal.c'.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/.../xfce4-session-4.12.1/settings'

This file does not exist in the tarball so something is buggy from
