You can cc: yourself on
if you want to track their progress on that. Until then, you probably
want to update libsoup from branches/gnome-2-20 instead of trunk.

Right, libsoup 2.4 is targeting GNOME 2.22, so it uses the version of
glib that will also be in 2.22, which hasn't had a stable release yet.

Oops, fixed now.

Yeah, this is tricky. You need to set

  ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /opt/tmp/evotest/share/aclocal"

when autogen'ing, so that it picks up the new version of glib-2.0.m4
which recognizes "gio" in the AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0 call, so that libsoup
gets linked against gio too, not just glib and gobject.
