xfdesktop from CBLFS

Hi Folks,
    I am sending this post from my new albeit minimal for now 
workstation (CLFS/CBLFS multi-lib) running on AMD64 Athlon. I'm running 
xorg-7.3 and XFCE window manager. Everything in XFCE started up except 
for xfdesktop so it doesn't look too nice right now but at least it's 
functional enough to run Firefox and Thunderbird. When I first saw what 
was happening I thought for some reason it wasn't told to start but when 
I tried to start it manually it segfaulted. I tried to recompile it and 
it compiled without errors but it still segfaults when run. I have 
compiled gdb and strace to help find out why but I guess I have been out 
of programming too long. I'll include the last part of the strace here. 
I have tried to look out on www.xfce.org for a possible patch but the 
site seems to be down. Are they still in business? I tried XFCE a while 
ago and really like it but if I cant find out what is happening and fix 
it I'll have to go with something else. Can someone point me in the 
right direction? Thanks in advance for any help.
