How To compile splash engine seperately

I want to make custom xfce4-splash engine i.e. similar to mice

i do some research that its source code is avaliable in xfce4-session/engines/{balou,mice,simple}

i can compile modify and compile them with makefile present in their respective directory

but i want to know the codes for compiling them seperately without the need of xfce4-session complete source codes

i try to move the folder xfce4-session/engine/mice to <other dir>
then try to compile it with makefile present in it then it show some

''' cd ../.. && make  am--refresh
make[1]: Entering directory '/dmp'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'am--refresh'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/dmp'
make: *** [Makefile:486: ../../configure] Error 2

i just want the compiler paramater to compile mice.c to libmice.so

i try to use
>>> gcc -l<A_LOT_OF_LIBRARIES> -I<LOTS_OF_HEADER_FILES>  mice.c -o libmice.so -c

file compiled (i know i have done it wrong) but not showing in xfce4 when i put it on /lib/xfce4/session/splash-engines/
please correct me
