libglib-object-introspection-perl has never been built on s390x,
which is the only 64-bit big endian release architecture AFAIK.
So this issue isn't release critical anymore now that 32-bit big
endian architectures work (starting from 0.020-2).

Cloning a separate bug for the 64-bit part and closing the RC one.

No need to 'drop a target architecture' AIUI: no old binaries need
to be removed and 64-bit BE autobuilders can keep trying until
the issue is fixed.
