There should never be a need for LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting (except in some
very special cases). After installing glib, edit glib-config and
add the appropriate -R flag to `glib-config --libs' output. This is
output from my system (just as an example):

prompt> glib-config --libs
-L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib -lglib

GTK configure script should work fine after that.

Then, when compiling GTK, set LD_OPTIONS=-R/usr/local/lib (substitute the
directory where the libraries live, if not /usr/local/lib). Type `make'
and your GTK libraries should be built almost correctly.
