Yes, the old build failures were fixed (toolchain problem) and I have
removed any "-introspection" option flags from my build process.

The problem I observed seems to have stemmed from packages which gained
the "introspection" option, default enabled, after a previous update.
They were considered up-to-date and not rebuilt, but had not included
the "Foo-X.Y.gir" file(s) expected by later dependent packages.

Perhaps these packages should have had a PKGREVISION bump when the option
was added, as it appears that introspection was not enabled before the
option was added.
