 Note, the change to require and link against glib has been backed out in
 revision 1.18 of pkgsrc/games/gnugo/Makefile.
 As far as I can tell, glib is not necessary to compile gnugo.
 glib is apparently optionally wanted on platform that don't provide
 a vsnprintf()-like function.
 Looking at the code none of the invocation appear to be prone to buffer
 overflows and the specific coding style used makes it clear that the
 authors were doing cargo cult programming.
 This should stay backed out for now.
