I realize this has been explained multiple times - but it seems that
there is something wrong.  If a packaged isn't marked unsafe_depends
(because of a dependency being replaced), it causes problems, and
rebuilding it helps, then it seems there is some hidden dependency.

Does anyone understand what's wrong with glib2 in this case such that
rebuilding it helps?  And how this problem is happening despite the
"rebuild things that depend on a replaced package"?
