I install pkgsrc in a separate location to freshen up the software environemnt 
in a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.3 setup.

One package getting into an issue with old versions of things in /usr is 
devel/gobject-introspection. It finds 'gir' files p.ex. for old system pango in 
/usr, while it should use the fresh one installed into /some/prefix/pkgsrc/.

This leads to build failures of various software in the stack.
Have a rusty base system with existing .gir files for gobject-introspection and 
install pkgsrc into a separate prefix. Any build that uses g-ir-scanner or 
g-ir-compiler possibly finds an outdated file and fails, although up-to-date 
files are installed in pkgsrc prefix. I'll include a crude patch that solves 
the problem for me.

PS: I have another hack in buildlink3 in plac that prevents system libs 
overriding pkgsrc ones (disabling BUILDLINK_LIBDIRS at a certain point). This 
should be independent from this issue though. All in all, the case with 
possibly present old versions in the base system is not the everyday one, I
