you should try the patch attached to this bug:

and see if it fixes the issue for you.

Hi guys,

I just updated from git master and noticed a problem when building with

Round about line 427, 'gtypes.h' has added a small section with some
function definitions that look like this:-

      static inline gboolean _GLIB_CHECKED_ADD_U32 (guint32 *dest, guint32
a, guint32 b) {
          *dest = a + b; return *dest >= a; }

Unfortunately, MSVC won't compile the above if I try to compile as 'C' code.
It compiles fine if I comment out the 'inline' keyword - but otherwise, I
get the following compiler error for each of the newly added functions in
that section:-

      error C2054: expected '(' to follow 'inline'

FWIW these particular sections compile fine if I build as C++. Unfortunately
though, there are quite a few other areas that won't compile as C++ (with
MSVC).  So currently I can't build either as C or C++.  Hope someone can
