autofoo-1.10 and evolution

I'm running Fedora Rawhide. I'm having problems building packages such as HAL (specifically make distcheck) using aclocal-1.10 and automake-1.10. If I manually use the *-1.7 packages things build like they used to, but of course 1.10 is always chosen over 1.7 to build rpm's and thus the rebuild fails like this:

gtk-doc: Compiling scanner
mkdir .libs
 gcc -g -O2 -Wall -Wchar-subscripts -Wmissing-declarations -Wnested-externs -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wsign-compare -c hal-scan.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/hal-scan.o
hal-scan.c:5:25: error: glib-object.h: No such file or directory
hal-scan.c:7: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'libhal_psi_get_type'
hal-scan.c:8: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'hal_device_store_get_type'

Anyone come across this before, or have any ideas on how to fix this?

Also evolution has been broken on rawhide for the last week or so for me. Don't you just love rawhide.
