Check out to determine which group 
is appropriate for your support request.

Also, check out BLFS book <> and the 
documentation (README, INSTALL, etc.) that comes with glib. One of the 
doc mentions that the glib-1.x and glib-2.x are not compatible and that 
they both can coexist.

Also, many packages have been updated to glib-2, so check out the 
documentation that comes with mc, there maybe a configure flag to link 
against later versions.
