Bug Description

* Impact
the package fails to build, see

* Test case
Check that the package once accepted is building without issue

* Regression potential
There is no code change but it's a rebuild so it could be impacted by a toolchain change, make sure that GNOME keeps working without rendering issue and that totem does play videos fine
