Just thought I'd reply.. hope this helps:

Make sure you install glib's .pc file in a location that will be seen by
pkg-config. /usr/lib/pkgconfig is where the .pc files should go by
default.. if you are installing glib in a location other than /lib then
you may need to adjust your PKG_CONFIG_PATH when compiling programs that
are dependent on glib.

eg.. If you use 
./configure --prefix=/opt

for glib then when you compile pango you will need to do:

export PGK_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/lib/pkgconfig
./configure --prefix=/opt

Make sure you install all the gnome packages into the same prefix.. Hope
this helps..
