 I do not know for sure, original commit was not mine. I just
identified the problem and tried to solve it.

 At this time the only way to compile glib for the target would be
install libglib-dev on the host.

 However as Intravenoes (cfr. note: 0015074 of bug report 0005724)
noted host/target glib version mismatch could be fatal.

 AFAIK the whole glib package should go expanded  in


 and compiled in


 like others tools like sstrip or gcc
