Re: Best way to compile with CPAN Glib?

Using ExtUtils::Depends should work fine, yes. But if you don't actually use any of the Perl bindings that CPAN Glib provides, then you could also use ExtUtils::PkgConfig directly to find the necessary information about C glib, like CPAN Glib does in its Makefile.PL.

Also, I need to ensure that the version of GNU glib is greater than
or equal to 2.22.0.  Is Glib->CHECK_VERSION( 2, 22, 0 ) the right way
to do this?

This function is a thin wrapper around the GLIB_CHECK_VERSION macro, which checks against the compile-time version. But if you need to ensure that you are actually running with a glib >= 2.22.0, then check against Glib::major_version, Glib::minor_version and Glib::micro_version as described in `perldoc Glib::version`. (Unfortunately, we don't seem to wrap glib_check_version yet).
