The fundamental thing introspection needs to do (and it shares this with
gtk-doc, but we tend to disable that in jhbuild) is run code from the
uninstalled tree at build time.

High level discussion is here:

Now, while I think we've largely sorted out a lot of the obvious
problems with introspection at this point,

toolchain maintainers flipping linker flags at will (and this
is the one that hit you if I understand correctly).
