You wouldn't happened to have installed glib in some other places than
normal, and then pointed at it?  I noticed that when compiling GTK+, if
you specify a directory for glib, it can't work.  It assumes that
--with-glib points to the source directory for glib, and so all of the
files it wants (glib-config, and the include files) are in that
