I didn't take the time to read the full log so sorry if I'm beside the
point but according to the traceback you provided, it seems to me it's
searching for gtksourceview-3.0 which, since recently, is provided by
gtksoureview-3 and not gtksourceview. What happens if you change
gtksourceview to gtksourceview-3 in the propagated-inputs?
Have a nice day,
