Glib and gtk+ are both supposed to be completely backwards compatible
with respect to both API and ABI, so that aspect of the upgrade
shouldn't be a problem. Actually replacing the old version though, I
don't know what the safest way to do that is - mine is to have logged
everything done by the install so I can undo it cleanly, but that's no
use if you've not installed that way...
