I've found that adding gobject-introspection as a native-input to
geoclue first allows geoclue to generate the required typelib
file. FWIW, I'm writing this in an instance of gnome-shell.

I definitely agree. To get gnome-shell running on machine required the
at least the attached patch (the librsvg upgrade is not necessary to my
knowledge). I get more warnings about gnome-shell trying and failing to
run the "ibus-daemon" command, a suggestion for geoclue to use
glib-networking for TLS/SSL support.
