So, I tested your pkgconf bump, and indeed it solves this particular
glib-genmarshal et al. issues, by now returning the sysrooted path:

    $ /home/ymorin/dev/buildroot/O/host/bin/pkg-config --variable=glib_genmarshal glib-2.0
    /home/ymorin/dev/buildroot/O/host/bin/../m68k-buildroot-linux-uclibc/sysroot/usr/bin/glib-genmarshal

Wee! :-)

Of course, do not take that as a tested-by tag for the bump, it is too
limited to be so.

I'll kick-start two biggish build this morning, with just the new pkgconf
and see how it behaves across the tree, once without the libglib2,
andother with.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
