This is irrelevant, since the .typelib files are used by many other
softwares, not just lgi.

Again, these typelib files are needed for other gobject introspection based 
bindings. Python has them, and the same is true for javascript.
In other words, if Gentoo ships Gnome3, then these .typelib files must have
been packaged and installed somewhere.

Unfortunately I don't know Gentoo well enough to tell you how to look for them.
