Eh?  Just patch the Makefiles to include `glib-config --cflags` which is
what the maintainers of the package _should_ already be doing.  However,
it's Ghostscript, so there's that whole absentee landlord thing. 
They've failed to keep up with the changes between glib-1.0 and glib-1.2
that were made specifically to eliminate parallel build problems.

The book should have a patch for this brokenness, not a set of symlinks
