That's not an Xfce stuff. And to be honest, I don't even know what it
is. apt-cache search reveals there's a gnome-main-menu package, so maybe
you try to configure the wrong stuff.

If you want to use the debian menu with the Xfce menu in the panel,
right click on it, properties and select ?use a custom menu file?. Then
pick /etc/xdg/menus/debian-menu.menu

If you want to use the debian menu with the right click on the desktop,
I think you need to make a symlink manually, but I'm not really sure
about that.
