Building GIMP master fails because of missing gobject-introspection

Hello,

I was trying to build GIMP master (commit f74320d4dc5e92351001cd44c4380c95725eccd5). Configure failed with this message:

checking for gobject-introspection... configure: error: gobject-introspection-1.0 is not installed

Configure failed or did not finish!

It also happened when I pass the parameter --enable-introspection=no Interestingly having the Debian package gobject-introspection (version 1.58) installed didn't have an effect. After installing the package libgirepository1.0-dev it works, but it seems that the handling of the parameter --enable-introspection=no is buggy (or if introspection is required, then it should not be possible to disable it).
