Note that we have a pkg-config bump in the pending patches:
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/967653/. The bump is quite major, and
potentially affects how pkg-config behaves with variables. It might be
worth testing what happens, and in any case, if a solution is designed,
it should be based on this newer version of pkg-config.

For now, I will revert this libglib2 bump. I'll wait a bit for the dust
to settle, and then I will apply this pkg-config bump, which is another
risky change. The kind of stuff that is good to do early in the
development cycle :-)
