Requirements
============
GLib-2.0 requires pkg-config, which is tool for tracking the
compilation flags needed for libraries. (For each library, a small .pc
text file is installed in a standard location that contains the
compilation flags needed for that library along with version number
information.) Information about pkg-config can be found at:
http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/
GNU make (http://www.gnu.org/software/make) is also recommended.
In order to implement conversions between character sets,
GLib requires an implementation of the standard iconv() routine.
Most modern systems will have a suitable implementation, however
many older systems lack an iconv() implementation. On such systems,
you must install the libiconv library. This can be found at:
http://clisp.cons.org/~haible/packages-libiconv.html
http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/
If your system has an iconv implementation but you want to use
libiconv instead, you can pass the --with-libiconv option to

it, you will get an error while compiling GTK+ because the

Finally, for message catalog handling, GTK+ requires an implementation
of gettext(). If your system doesn't provide this functionality,
you should use the libintl library from the GNU gettext package,
available from:

One particular detail to note, is that the architecture-dependent
include file glibconfig.h is installed in:
$exec_pref/lib/glib/include/
$exec_prefix/lib/glib/include/
if you have a version in $prefix/include, this is out of date
and should be deleted.
A shell script glib-config is created during the configure
process, and installed in the bin/ directory
($exec_prefix/bin). This is used to determine the location of glib
when building applications. If you move glib after installation,
it will be necessary to edit this file.
.pc files for the various libraries are installed in
$exec_prefix/lib/pkgconfig to provide information when compiling
other packages that depend on GTK+. If you set PKG_CONFIG_PATH
so that it points to this directory, then you can get the
correct include flags and library flags for compiling a GLib
application with:
pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0
pkg-config --libs glib-2.0

This is a development version of GLib. You should be using a stable
version, which is available at ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v1.2/. This
version is meant for developers of GLib only:

General Information
===================
This is GLib version @GLIB_VERSION@. GLib is a library which includes support
routines for C such as lists, trees, hashes, memory allocation, and
many other things.
This is GLib version @GLIB_VERSION@. GLib is the low-level core
library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK+ and GNOME. It
provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and
interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads,
dynamic loading, and an object system.

Notes about GLib-2.0.0
======================
* On systems without the libintl from GNU gettext() or a recent version
of the GNU C library, the encoding of translated error messages will be
incorrect (they should be in UTF-8). A workaround for this is to install
GNU gettext and use that libintl. This is expected to be fixed in GLib-2.0.1.
Application programmers should not call g_locale_to_utf8() on these
strings.
* The results of g_strerror() are currently in the encoding of the locale
rather than in UTF-8. Again, this is a bug, and not behavior that
should be relied upon.
* Similarly, the GLib error logging functions such as g_print(), g_warning(),
g_error(), currently do not convert the strings they are passed from
UTF-8 to the encoding of the locale, or check that the strings they
are passed are valid UTF-8. They should, despite this, be assumed to take
UTF-8 arguments.
