 Essentially, start with no packages at all, and pick any one that depends
 on "gobject-introspection".  On i386 it will likely fail immediately.
 On amd64 it may succeed to build "gobject-introspection" itself, but
 fail later when it is used, either on that initial package or some
 subsequent package which also uses it.
 Otherwise, the answer is the output of 'pkg_info -a'.  (My build
 hosts are currently engaged in other tasks, but once free, I could
 start them on another from-scratch build.)

 For myself no, I am not using any such tools/frameworks.  The failure
 first manifested during use of 'pkg_rolling-replace' to update packages
 on a -current system (7.99.32 at the time).
 It subsequently failed during ordinary building of a package depending
 on "gobject-introspection", causing an attempt to build it.  I.e.,
   $ cd /usr/pkgsrc/some/package
   $ make package-install
 The conditions under which it succeeded/failed have been detailed
 at length already.

 That's what the bulk of the PR to date documents.  It has proven resistant
 to my (and other's) attempts to gather more information.
