You should remove glob.h from your package.  This is a POSIX header file
which is part of glibc.

The version in your package seems to be the BSD version of the same thing,
which is unfortunately incompatible with the actual function in glibc.  Maybe
you can modify your code to use the GNU glob(3)?
