No sure if this is the same problem I saw during my build, but if it is,
it's to do with gir-repository being built before libunique (same thing
for vte).
I also found that if gobject-introspection is installed before building
libunique, then gir-repository will be a requirement for libunique and
on top of that, gtk2 needs to be built before gir-repository.
The gir-repository page needs to have its optional dependencies updated
(Ticket 2971).
Now that 2.28.1 is in, feel free to update whatever page is necessary
with your fixes. At some stage I'll take another look gdm and see if the
sym links cannot be removed with an alternative patch fix.
Speaking of which, I've got a new problem with gdm. After a reboot, the
login button is missing. Doing a <cntl-alt-bcksp> to restart gdm, brings
back the login button.
Wayne.
