[gtk-osx-users] Error when compiling gobject-introspection on macOS 10.13


I got the following error during jhbuild when compiling gobject-introspection:

  GISCAN   GLib-2.0.gir
Traceback (most recent call last):

*** Error during phase build of gobject-introspection: ########## Error running make -j 9  *** [5/11]

My deployment target is 10.6 and it seems that the deployment target of python under macOS 10.13 is 10.13 which leads to this error.

I don't know what the proper fix is but as a workaround I tried to add the following line into giscanner/ccompiler.py just before the call which causes the error:

os.environ["MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET"] = "10.13"

This overrides the deployment target just for the run of the introspection script and makes it work. Not very nice though.
