The indended use is to just include the toplevel header file, ie 

#include <gtk/gtk.h> 


#include <glib.h>

An exception from this rule are the stdio wrappers, for which you
explicitly have to 

#include <glib/gprintf.h>

This is because glib.h is not supposed to pull in stdio.h.

All of this is documented in the API docs.
