If you use Fink to install the packages, you'll have them all installed
in the same $prefix. People that get that kind of error have some
packages installed in a prefix and some in another (/usr, /usr/local,
/sw, somewhere else).
You need to set the env var ACLOCAL_FLAGS to something like:
ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/local/share/aclocal"
before runnin autogen.sh (or run aclocal with the correct arguments
manually). The directory specified in the flags is the one where you
installed glib-2.0.m4.
