installed documentation index needs to link to thunar documentation

Currently, the installed documentation on an end-user's system links to "xffm.html"[1], which clearly no longer exists when installing Xfce 4.4. It should instead be replaced by a link to Thunar's documentation, which I've found here[2] but nowhere else.

Installing Thunar does not seem to drop the appropriate documentation into the same /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C/ directory as that of all the other Xfce components.

Note: I'd be happy to update the documentation for Thunar. I was partway into writing an xffm.xml replacement for Thunar before it was pointed out to me on IRC that such a doc exists...just not on an end-user's system.

I'll see about providing some patches against the thunar manual[3] in the mean time. :)

[3] http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/thunar/trunk/docs/manual/C/Thunar.xml.in

Reproducible: Always

I hereby make the request to have this block 4.6, as the documentation links in the shipped 4.4 files still refer to 4.2, and that's just darned old.

Doc updates

* Fix compilation with debug (AC_C_CONST breaks everything here).
* Make index docs xhtml valid.
* Convert fr doc to utf8
* Relative link to the thunar docs. Bit ugly but better then nothing...
