The bug is that you cannot feed these packages without additional work to an
OBS instance for building.

The hack I had to apply was to build pango without
BuildRequires:gobject-introspection and polkit without Requires:ConsoleKit and
to put these temporary files into /srv/obs/build/$PRP/$ARCH/:full (note: fresh
strap, there has been no openSUSE for $ARCH previously), just to kick off the
building process. That may be reasonable in a porting effort, but do we have to
have these hurdles?

python's cycle for example (xorg-x11 requires python requires xorg-x11) was
once nicely solved by having a python-base.spec. Could not something similar be
done for {Console,pol}kit?
