Check the output of 'ldd -a

Presumably that got rebuilt with your reinstall of py-gobject3.

But it could be that /usr/local/lib/libgirepository-1.0.so.1 may also have a
stale dependency on libffi for you (see the 'ldd -a' output).  So reinstalling
devel/gobject-introspection may be required as well (the PORTREVISION for that
port, too, was bumped on May 9 with the libffi update).

(In reply to rkoberman from comment #10)

Yes, lang/python38 depends on libffi, but, more importantly for this issue, so
does py-gobject3 (see 'make -C devel/py-gobject3 -V LIB_DEPENDS').  And the
file that is causing the problem for the OP, _gi.cpython-38.so, is installed by
py-gobject3 (see 'pkg which
/usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/gi/_gi.cpython-38.so').  And, as
described above, _gi.cpython-38.so is also linked with libgirepository-1.0.so
which itself is also linked with libffi.
