This is something I had encountered.

The Travis script flushes the ABI cache on a libabigail version change.
When using the test-meson-builds.sh integration, the gen-abi.sh
devtools script can be called to regenerate the dump files from the
existing local binaries.

I am still unconvinced about the approach, but I'll wait for your next proposal.
