=> As the originator of pkg/51266 I find this thread interesting.

=> After seeing this thread, I tried again to build "gobject-introspection"

=> did not install/replace the incumbent (last built on 7.99.66).  Using the

=> circumvented built successfully.

   FWIW, I completed my rebuild by doing a pkg_delete -f on the packages
containing the modules which had not yet been updated and doing a make
replace on gobject-introspection. The deleted packages were rebuilt by
the packages which depended on them as part of the restarted
pkg_rolling-replace. That seemed to work fine.[1] I never touched
anything Python related, and I should still be using the default

[1] I had some dependency issues elsewhere, with some xfce4 packages
needing an include of the gtk3 buildlink, but that's it.
