I began to look at it, and except lxapnel and libfm which appear to be quite long, other LXDE should not be problem. I already begin to write patches, and forwarding them to the LXDE patches tracker.
But any help from uptream will be welcome :) Yes, macros could be a solution to migrate more easier, I think pcmanfm already use some macros for this.

There is also a mode without dconf and gconf, using .ini files. I don't known how is the state of this backend, but it's maybe a good solution.
