If you can come up a one-liner patch to make it compatible with old

older glib per se, unless it comes with too much of a maintenance
cost... but I'm not really sure if it's worth it.

Glib version check patch attached.

Back when I was taking care of backporting mc to older RHELs, I simply
used to build newer glib statically from within the package and link
mc to it... that's the route I'd suggest you to go if you care about
backporting mc to Squeeze.

I'm not interested in backporting MC to Debian Squeeze. I'm building MC
packages for Debian/Ubuntu actual releases (see and Squeeze in this
list due to Debian Squeeze LTS.

If support "cost" for Debian Squeeze is going higher (higher than cost
of electricity which buildbot spend to build package) then I will drop
support for Debian Squeeze.
