Status update: there’s now ‘librsvg-for-system’ used in a variety of
places, which selects librsvg 2.40 (in C) on non-x86_64 systems:

It’s used in a number of places, including GTK+, Emacs, Mate, and Xfce:

We can now build Mate and Xfce on i686, with SVG support in GTK+
(without that I suppose they’d be next to unusable because many/most
icons are SVGs these days.)

What we still cannot build is GNOME, and it seems to be out of reach
because gnome → gjs → rust… unless we can use an older GJS or even

It’s a problem because GDM is in ‘%desktop-services’.
