Yes, this is unfortunate and was caused by glib maintainers moving
some functions to a different header.  We complained that this was a
form of API breakage, but they said that the only API that they
guarantee is that you should always just include <glib.h>.  So we
fixed it in newer versions of glibmm, but as you found out, older
versions are broken by this.
Is the giomm stuff the only reason you're holding off on glibmm 2.16?
Because I can try to get that sorted out soon if you'll help with

btw, murray, it looks like you updated the website for glibmm 2.16 in
svn but never pushed it to the server.  Could you do that?
