Apologies if this is an upstream issue, but the few google search results listed gentoo bugs, so it could be related.

In libsoup-gnome-9999 at commit d80d4b7a29afc6f, compile fails with the following error:

Does libsoup-gnome have a missing dependency on gir-repository?

I think I found the problem: libsoup-gnome-2.30.1 and .2 in portage have a special patch package: libsoup-2.30.1-build-gir-patches.tar.bz2.

I can't see how to get these to apply cleanly to the git version, although I think it has more to do with file paths than content diff conflicts. I've tried putting the untarred patches in the local FILESDIR and including them in the manifest. I've also tried using the SRC_URI line with only that patch distribution. No luck yet.

Turns out the patches are already applied in libsoup upstream git. The latest libsoup-gnome ebuild has new USE introspection. When synced with libsoup-gnome-9999.ebuild, it emerges fine. Difff included below, formatting may get munged:
