This caused the configure to fail saying:
checking for glib-config... /usr/bin/glib-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.1... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log
for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB was incorrectly
*** or that you have moved GLIB since it was installed. In the latter
case, you
*** may want to edit the glib-config script: /usr/bin/glib-config
configure: error:
*** GLIB 1.2.1 or better is required. The latest version of GLIB
*** is always available from
*** Error code 1

The real problem is like (from config.log):
/usr/include/glib/glib-1.2/glib.h:66:24: glibconfig.h: No such file or directory
In file included from configure:7008:
/usr/include/glib/glib-1.2/glib.h:502: error: parse error before "gssize"

I am using X11BASE = LOCALBASE for a few months on this system. I had
patched mk/buildlink2/ to not strip out X11BASE when it
was same as LOCALBASE.

But I haven't done anything with mk/buildlink3/ for that

Is anyone else using X11BASE as LOCALBASE? (Instead of using xpkgwedge.)
