I just filed this:
Jhbuild should be able to tell me when I need to re-run "jhbuild
bootstrap".  Pyrex was added recently to the bootstrap meta-module.

Also, we have hal, which never builds because it wants libvolume_id.  I
know this is mentioned here:

And it suggests that you apply a patch to hal to make it do nothing when
it has to do calls to libvolume_id.  Why is the patch not on CVS?  Note
that a jhbuilt GNOME, built expressly for testing purposes, will *NOT*
use the new HAL daemon; it will use the existing one from the system!
So it doesn't make sense for *that* build of HAL to expect a super-new
