I'm not sure we need to bump the dependency for glib, since it's a
compile-time problem, not a run-time change.

I just updated the PKGREVISION for glib.  So if someone sees something
doesn't build, checks and sees that he doesn't have the latest glib,
we hopefully will try to update that first.

I was tempted to update the buildlink-dependency to 1.2.10nb1, too.
Now I'm not so sure anymore -- why do we have to update the
PKGREVISION of dependant packages? For binary packages? (Do we still
need it after we got @blddep?) Is there no better way?
