No, there are 2 libraries which has similar names: glibc and glib

GLib is a library which includes support routines for C such as lists,
trees, hashes, memory allocation, and many other things.

glibc is the GNU C libraries and header files.

Since upgrading GTK stack requires a lot of efforts since there are lots
of components related AND affected by it, i would recommend to stick
with the current version of glabel for 14.1 or upgrade to 14.2.
