I think it just needed the rpm stuff for some reason.  I installed rpm (don't use it either). I had to install a more recent gobject-introspection to get the more recent appstream-glib to build.  And yes, there's a bug with yaml and the meson build system.  see:

I would add that you need a recent version of meson to get it to build properly too.

I love dependency problems.

Indeed.  :P

This is the worse case of dependency problems for GIMP I have had to deal with in quite a while. I need to compile appstream-glib which needed about three other -dev packages. I then hit the yaml issue which required the newer glib-introspection program. Trying to compile that required some other package I don't have. About this point I gave up on trying to build git master branch of GIMP.

If/when I update my distro to Mint 19 I'll try again.
