Did you install glib?  It's looking for a script (glib-config) that is
in your PATH and when run with --version prints the latest version.

If you type 'glib-config --version' do you get a version number?  Is it
>= 1.2.8?

You have a pretty new version of GTK+.  I have only built glib and
GTK 1.2.7.

I'd recommend *not* using pthreads at all (or at least until the above
problems are cleared up).
