Been banging my head against the wall for a couple of days on this one.  If
it is as simple as read this, please let me know what I should be searching
on, since I don't see anyway to solve the issue.

Using pkgsrc (current) on RedHat8 box, attempting glib2 compile
=> Checksum OK for glib-2.2.3.tar.bz2.
===> Extracting for glib2-2.2.3nb1
===> Required installed package perl>=5.0: perl-5.8.1 found

===> Required installed package x11-links>=0.17: x11-links-0.18 found
===> Required installed package pkgconfig>=0.15.0: pkgconfig-0.15.0 found

*** Error code 1

bmake: stopped in /opt/pkgsrc/devel/glib2
*** Error code 1

bmake: stopped in /opt/pkgsrc/devel/glib2

Don't even get an error message for what is going wrong.

Occassionally on the compile, I do get this output instead:

Making all in gthread

make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt/pkgsrc/devel/glib2/work/glib-2.2.3'

Which I do find information on, however, not with this package, and what is
suggested is not fixing the problem.

Any suggestions?  Will summarize.
