Package: libxfce4ui-common
Version: 4.12.1-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I was looking for obsolete conf files with the following command:

dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' | grep obsolete
 /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml 790207e5d25ad049de0ffebde9d19684 obsolete

This file was first present on my system, so I rm it. Then I reinstalled
the package with

apt-get --reinstall install libxfce4ui-common

I re-ran the first command and found the exact same output. But
strangely the file was not present in the directory. I then listed all
installed files with

dpkg --listfiles libxfce4ui-common | grep shortcut

but no file on the system.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Have the file present on the system.

I then 'apt-get source libxfce4ui-common' and looked for the file
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml. I get:

$ grep -Rn 'xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml' *
libxfce4kbd-private/Makefile.in:551:@ENABLE_KEYBOARD_LIBRARY_TRUE at settings_DATA = xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
libxfce4kbd-private/Makefile.am:71:settings_DATA = xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml

Here I'm blocked because I don't know the Makefile syntax.
