need help in some points to get gnumeric 'long' mature. introspection, GDA support, GNOME-DB support, Psiconv, PDF documentation.

I've been trying to get gnumeric 'long' out of the 'experimental' state for some time now, 
and have come quite far. To make this round I still need help with some peripheral points, 
see the result of my configuration log attached at the bottom of this post. 
TIA for any help!! 
- Introspection - I don't know this and can't handle it, with 'double' builds all 5 tests t-300x hold, 
with long t3000, t3001 and t3004 fail, logs also copied below. I need tips on what this can be, 
or how introspection is normally / manually used and how I can narrow down the fails. 
- GDA support - libgda is criticized already by 'double' builds in the configuration - see attached - as 'libgda problem', 
I tried to install it with apt-get: 
└─# apt-get install libgda-5.0-dev  
    ->  libgda-5.0-dev is already the newest version (5.2.10-2).
└─# apt-get install libgda-6.0-dev
    ->  E: Unable to locate package libgda-6.0-dev
and manually acc. 'linuxfromscratch', two issues: 
-- gnumeric requires version 6.0 ( shows up somewhere in the logs ), this is only supported 
by a few distributions, see <> and 
-- manual installation and build fail because the README says: 'Please note that if you use the Git 
repository the INSTALL file doesn't exist before you run the script. alas I can't find an in the repo ... :-(   Who has a working installation or can give hints how I could get to one. 
- GNOME-DB support - is about the same? if not please tell me what I have to do to activate it. 
- Psiconv support - what is it and what do I need to do to get rid of 'missing dependencies'?  
- PDF documentattion - how do I 'request' this, DBLatex had some installation difficulties. 
my OS: Kali Linux 2021-4, debian based,
