I'm not familiar with autoconfig scripts, but is this workaround still necessary? According to following code chunk taken from http://git.xfce.org/archive/xfce-utils/tree/configure.in.in eliminating the --with-vendor-info script argument will make VENDOR_INFO undefined AC_ARG_WITH([vendor-info], AC_HELP_STRING([--with-vendor-info=NAME], [Specify an additional vendor name, optionally with a file in prefix/share/xfce4/NAME]), [with_vendor_info="$withval"], [with_vendor_info=""]) if test x"$with_vendor_info" != x""; then AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED([VENDOR_INFO], ["$with_vendor_info"], [Additional vendor name and/or info]) AC_MSG_RESULT([$vendorinfo]) else AC_MSG_RESULT([not set]) fi Then xfce4-about (in its main.c) will not look for any vendorinfo file and will show only xfce version without any vendor name. http://git.xfce.org/archive/xfce-utils/tree/xfce4-about/main.c > I've never had this message in my log session.
