According to the upstream author it's abandoned and he'll eventually
rewrite it. Can you remove it from now the archive for now?

https://launchpad.net/xfce4-volumed/ :
*XVD is no longer maintained* It relies on libkeybinder and gst-0.10, 
both of which are superseded, and it needs to integrate a longstand
PulseAudio support patch. I will, eventually, rewrite xvd with 
libxfce4utils instead of libkeybinder and gst1.0 instead of gst-0.10. 
If you want to contribute to Xfce by fixing an old but useful piece 
of code, get in touch with me!
