xfce4-settings-manager is empty, shows no configuration icons. I've also noticed this behaviour on Whisker menu, which is missing all the category icons; I am able to find the applications if I go to the "All" sub menu.

Ok, I was able to resolve it.

I build my system with the variable UMASK set to 077, which caused the permissions of the directory /usr/local/share/ to be 700. Strance revealed that xfce4-settings-manager was trying to read that folder but was getting a "Permission denied" error; I switched back the permissions on that folder to 0755 and now I have all the applications listed in the panel and settings back again.
