GLib, being a portability library, I think is a nice thing to use.  Is
there any way that (should the host system not actually have it) the
Mono build process could use a local copy of it (or fetch a copy and
build it along with Mono) and just use that?

That would seem to me a much more reasonable option than leaving
altogether.  If the host system doesn't have glib, or it has a glib
that is far out of date as would seem to be the original cause for this
thread, Mono can just build a copy and place it in /usr/local/lib along
with its libraries.

	Just my 2¢,

Your mouse has moved. Windows NT must be restarted for the change to
take effect. Reboot now? [ OK ]
