GLIB is installed in /usr/local/lib (as per its default)... I ran a find / -name glib-config which turned up no results.
the glib-config script that this is referencing does not seem to exist...
any ideas?

the glib-config script is used in the 1.2.x version of glib/gtk. Your application needs
to be compiled against gtk 1.2, NOT gtk 2.0.x.

You need to install the development packages for gtk 1.2 (either from sources or a package) You can install both versions (1.2 and 2.x) with no problem as 2.0 uses the script pkg-config.
