xfwm4 4.14.0-1 (in sid and unstable) is only linked against libxfconf-0.3, not
libxfconf-0.2, so it's definitely not where the problem lies. Xfce 4.14 just
migrated to testing so that could explain your issue (which is likely
transient), but it shouldn't have happened anyway.
Can you install the pax-utils package (and only that package, please try not
to upgrade anything else) and give us the output of lddtree (so we have an
idea from where exactly the link comes from). My guess would be libxfce4ui, so
if you could give us the output of dpkg -l |grep libxfce4ui in the same reply
it'd be nice.
