On x86_64 xfce4 is available as a binary package, and at least on my
Virtualbox it starts fine. What library are you missing?

There's an issue with dbus and/or gconf2 though---something you've
reported earlier---so for instance gnome applications like gedit etc
are not fully functional. I tried to debug gedit using truss, but noob
as I am didn't get too far. Xfce file manager Thunar is mostly
non-functional. On the other hand, KDE applications like kile, and the
kde file manager are fine; so I switched to using these. It would be
good to get dbus working though since many apps depend on it.
