Failed Vala Build

While reviewing a PR in ::gentoo I noticed that the software was unable to build with modern Clang due to the following:

- [-Wint-conversion]
- [-Wincompatible-function-pointer-types]

I raised this issue with Vala upstream and was advised that it is likely a Vala bug and to raise an issue upstream:
Comment 1 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-02-12 01:03:37 UTC
This may be fixed by the dev-lang/vala-0.56.4 bump today.
Comment 2 Matt Jolly 2023-02-12 05:59:16 UTC
Can confirm that both `net-im/dino` and `app-editors/zile` still fail to build.

Both fail with `error: incompatible function pointer types`
