Digging into g-ir-scanner did not show anything special. I decided the
problem was on libtool side (still open). Also, since the exported
value of LD_LIBRARY_PATH was not retained during the whole make
process I dug into the Makefile for the gir portion of gir-repository
and explicity set the variable right just before every call of
g-ir-scanner for the components whose libraries are in /opt/gnome/lib
in my system. This made the package to build.

I did not try it but since /opt/gnome is a symlink to
/opt/gnome-2.28.2 I understand it should make no difference to include
/opt/gnome/lib in ld.so.conf (as it is) instead of

Up to this point following suggested Gnome build order it is the first
time a library in /opt is not recognized/found.
