Status in gobject-introspection package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu includes /usr/local/lib in the library search path via a file
  in /etc/ld.so.conf.d, and also configures pkg-config to look for .pc
  files in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig.  But gobject-introspection's built-
  in search path looks for type libraries only in /usr, not in
  /usr/local.  That's inconsistent: I can install shared libraries in
  /usr/local and programs will find them, but their type libraries will
  not be found.

  For consistency, I think Ubuntu should set the default gobject-
  introspection search path to include /usr/local/lib/girepository-1.0.
  It would be nice if gobject-introspection had a configure option that
  could set that (see
  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=699331).  In the meantime,
  it wouldn't be hard to patch gobject-introspection to set the default
  path; see init_globals() in girepository.c.
