I'm not familiar with autoconfig scripts, but is this workaround still
According to following code chunk taken from
eliminating the --with-vendor-info script argument will make
VENDOR_INFO undefined

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([not set])

Then xfce4-about (in its main.c) will not look for any vendorinfo file
and will show only xfce version without any vendor name.

I see it in the console from wich I run startxfce4

The /usr/local/share/xfce4/vendorinfo file. Or did you ask what to write there?
