You do if, as appears to be the case, you have two versions of glib
installed (your packaged glib in the /usr prefix and your own
compiled one in the /usr/local prefix), so as to prevent your build is
picking up the wrong one.

Either replace your earlier version with the later one (that is, build
a proper package for your distribution's packaging system), or set the
relevant environmental variables.  The first approach is the better
