RE: Pollin

I had that same problem, and I fought way too long with it.  I went
searching and I found that glibconfig.h is the file that should define
the various GLIB_SYSDEF* stuff.  In my case it seemed that the glib
install (cvs as of 1/6 at 5:00 p.m) wasn't copying glibconfig.h into 
the appropriate include directory.  In my case this was
/usr/local/include/glibconfig.h.  The fix:  I simply copied the file
from the base directory of the glib source (/usr/local/glib) and I was
golden. I thought for a while that it was just me and my system.  But
perhaps someone should look into whether glib installs glibconfig.h
correctly. For reference I have never had a problem in the three
months i have been compiling gnome cvs. I deleted, got, compiled, and
installed glib several times. I dunno, i'll look into it.
