Yes, you need the .c files because "The GObject Way" is to expose
signals and properties via a class_init function.  The signal prototypes
are specified in the header, but the only way to know they are really
signals (and not just virtual methods) is to parse the class_init
function where the signals are registered.  GObject properties aren't
even exposed in the headers.
