Hmm, I guess the icon-theme.cache one is harmless enough - however, there 
be many of those left anyway.  Is there an easy way to check the store of hydra 
or something
which packages still have those files?

I've fixed inkscape now.

However, about gschemas.compiled I'm not sure yet.

How do we ensure that glib-or-gtk-build-system is actually used for packages 
need it?

libreoffice has some problem that makes it crash every time it tries to open a
file dialog - I wonder if that's related (libreoffice uses gnu-build-system).

But glib-or-gtk-build-system expicitly generates gschemas.compiled, ensuring a
collision - what's up with that?

Shouldn't there be a profile hook for it instead?  There doesn't seem to be one.
