Building Spice-Gtk-0.7 via Debian Unstable with Gobject-introspection enabled as of 08/20/11

PPA description

Please, be advised that version of Spice-Gtk-0.7-2 coming from Debian Unstable doesn't support Gobject-introspection. Original version is not supposed to install files like *.gir and *.typelib. It also requires fixes for debian/control and debian/rules.

View build logs and changes been done to debian/control and debian/rules:

Added --enable-introspection to debian/rules dh_auto_configure.

dh_auto_configure -B/build/buildd/spice-gtk-0.7/build-gtk3 -- \
  --enable-smartcard=no --with-gtk=3.0 --disable-static --enable-introspection

dh_auto_configure -- \
  --enable-smartcard=no --with-gtk=2.0 --disable-static --enable-introspection

Several debian/package_name.install files have been updated by adding right full path to
corresponding library to accommodate installation of :

/usr/lib/girepository-1.0/SpiceClientGLib-2.0.typelib
/usr/lib/girepository-1.0/SpiceClientGtk-2.0.typelib
/usr/lib/girepository-1.0/SpiceClientGtk-3.0.typelib
/usr/share/gir-1.0/SpiceClientGLib-2.0.gir
/usr/share/gir-1.0/SpiceClientGtk-3.0.gir

which otherwise won't be installed
