I guess you mean RAD (Rapid Application Development) not RAID (Redundant
Array of Independent Disks)?

Why you didn't use pkg-config?

Yes I guess. It have been stable for a while. Anyway - glade3 is only an

gtkbuilder is sucessor of libglade (or rather integration of it into
core gtk+) and shoud be used.

libgnome have little in common with gtkbuilder but generally it is
designed to be 'killed'.
