Given that gnome now has the *-config programs to locate the
libs/flags, etc. for compiling, could you (for example) build glib in
a tmp dir, then make sure that tmp/usr/bin was in the PATH before
trying to build the other things?  This is still a problem, but it
might at least allow building everything without ever having to become

(Of course there are a million ways this could fail, and I don't know
enough about the g* packages to really know how likely that is...).
