OK, you have told us what is not happening. What is happening? Is any
version of glib found? Is it possible to post the error message that the
configure script is reporting (say, the last 20 lines of output before
it fails)?

When you built glib-2.2.2, did you just run 'configure', then 'make' and
'make install'? If so, then PKG_CONFIG_PATH will need to be set to
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig (it is a directory, so do not add the
glib-2.0.pc part).

Please post your response to the list (not just to me; I will see it on
the list) so that everybody can see the answers in the archives for
later reference.
