i'm having the same problem here with some libraries.
this should be solved when GLIB has been seperated from the GTK+ package,
it'll provide its own glib.m4 and glib-config files then.

until then i guess we can just make gtk-config support
similar to the existing options, and even maintain those flags after
the split has been made (since glib won't be split from gtk for the
GTK+-1.0.x line).

but i'd really like to get owen's opinion on this as well.
