Hello Colomban,

I saw that in the GTK3 porting PR for the debugger plugin and also tried 
changing scope.m4 accordingly:

But if I do that my code does not compile cause it says "#include 
<vte/vte.h>" not found.
I did not see any other build related changes regarding VTE in that PR 
so I wonder what's missing.
Any ideas?
