Likewise on amd64-8.0_BETA system.

In each case, re-installing "gvfs" causes building "gobject-introspection"
to fail.  Remove "gvfs" again and building "gobject-introspection" succeeds.

So, there's some bad interaction with "gvfs" that affects not only using
"gobject-introspection", but trying to (re)build it in the first place.

If it bears out in a full-scale build with "introspection" option
re-enabled, the workaround for me is to simply keep "-gvfs" in my

(I don't want "gvfs" anyway as it behaves badly with 'amd'-managed
removable media.  "gvfs-trashd" grabs them and won't let go.)
