Sorry for the delay in my response - I haven't had a chance to look into
this until now.

Still no luck getting upower to compile, even upower 0.9.6 failed.

I've disabled gobject-introspection in upower with the configure switch
--enable-introspection=no for the moment and moved on.

Thanks for the help!
