Maybe gobject-introspection should be a dependency. At least the lack of that package tripped me up when I tried to install gifine.
I know little about the various systems involved to install this (luarocks, pkg-config, gobject-introspection), so maybe the optimal solution is something else.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
extra/lua-lgi 0.9.2-1

* config and/or log files etc.
pkg-config --exists 'gobject-introspection-1.0 >= 0.10.8' --print-errors
Package gobject-introspection-1.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gobject-introspection-1.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gobject-introspection-1.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
Try to install gifine without gobject-introspection installed
This task depends upon

gobject-introspection is probably a makedependency of gifine. It souldn't needed for the installed applications based on lua-lgi.
