Thanks. However, I've been using mc (except >=4.5) for about 7 years without
glib dependency, and I see not a single reason to just let that dependancy
occur. or evolve to a higher degree.

I do have glib. I do have pkgconfig. I don't have anything against glib
_in general_, but pkgconfig is a braindead idea. Especially in its current,
binary form.

Yes, I have to compile and install pkgconfig too. Idiocry. And it's also
offtopic here.
