Since I didn't have AT-SPIv2 installed, there was no bridge module in the GTK
3 module directory. I created a symlink, and this was sufficient to make
gnome-terminal accessible:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Jun 20 12:35
/usr/lib/gtk-3.0/modules/libatk-bridge.so ->
(you could of course use a relative path in the symlink if preferred.)

Those of us who are running Sid might have to do this until Debian moves to
