this seems to work, (it gets rid of all the problems other than the ffi.h
include and the math functions).

i can't understand why it's workign though.  it seems that whatever
autoconf/automake stuff is outputting the GMODULE_CFLAGS and GMODULE_LIBS in
the makefiles should really be changed to use whatever GLIB_CONFIG is defined
as, otherwise what's the point of having a GLIB_CONFIG env variable?
