Eh? Which version and where did you get it? Current version for 14.2
is 20170731 and there is no GLIB_CFLAGS in there. I had to double
check again that because I maintain it.
Aside from that you could also try using CPPFLAGS with the setting.

No always true. I forced it to look in /usr/lib and it didn't fail
until the point that yours did, quite far into the build.

Which application needed it? It's not the most user-friendly thing in
the world, for new users anyway. Font editing is in a realm of its own.
