You just want to move the 'typelib' file to the main gobject package - this
is a runtime file. ".typelib" is to ".so.0.N" files, as ".gir" is to ".h"

Incidentally, if you're going to put version numbers in the gobject binary
and typelib files, then you'd normally expect to also put the header file
in a correspondingly versioned directory. ie I'd expect


The pkg-config file would also be named guestfs-gobject-1.0.pc, and set

-I/usr/include/guestfs-gobject-1.0 -lguest-gobject-1.0

The idea being that this is 100% parallel installable with -2.0 or -3.0
versions, should an ABI change be needed

Oh we're missing a pkg-config file for this...
