Well, if you want to get rid of the glib-2.2 installation, then you
should remove _all_ files, not only the libraries. Keeping the header
files around may lead to some obscure problems later that are less
obvious to debug than wrong library versions. And even if you removed
the header files, there's more left like for example the files
installed for pkg-config.

Either you go for replacing the 2.2 versions which means you should
take care of uninstalling them completely. But I would not recommened
fiddling with any files in your /usr prefix. You can go for a parallel
installation instead and adapt your build environment so that the new
libraries and their header files are being used. To do that, you
environment variables. Since you said you aren't clueless, you should
be able to proceed from here...
