That other user was me.  I eventually commented out the UUID check in
pv_read_all_pv_of_vg as the previous poster suggested.  This let me
run vgscan, vgchange -ay, and mount my LVs.  Just go to
pv_read_all_pv_of_vg.c and get rid of the code after the
    if ( uuids > 0 ) {

After getting vgscan to find my VGs, I pretty much just lucked into my
UUIDs getting set correctly and I'm still not sure what did it.  All I
did was activate my VGs (which I'm told couldn't have fixed the
UUIDs), run vgck (ditto), and run vgscan after the VGs were active.
vgscan at least _calls_ pv_write_uuidlist, so it is a possibility.
However, running vgscan on the non-active VGs definitely didn't update
the UUIDs for me.

Mine were originally created with 0.8final.
