Read my words again.  "Separate distribution" means that it will be a
separate bigger tarball especially for those who don't have glib and don't
want to install it.  And I'll make it only if I have time and there is
enough interest from the users.

You actually can do it yourself right now.  It requires no coding, just
some understanding of Autoconf, Automake and Libtool.  Put glib to a
subdir, make sure that "configure" and "make" know about it.  Remove check
for glib.  Disable shared library support.  Change makefiles to link
mcserv and mc against the included glib.  Test it.  Pack it.
