On my rather basic C7 system with epel enabled, I don't see any problems.

     # yum groupinstall "Xfce"
     Install  20 Packages (+193 Dependent packages)

It did not give any errors and the install list does not mention any of 
the missing packages that you list above.  It works fine with C7.  There 
must be some difference with your system.
