So again, what's the problem?  glib is as much gnome as it is kde or irssi.

I believe the issue is glib2 uses pkg-config to build, therefore
updating pkg-config to a version which uses glib2 provides interesting
opportunities for recursion...

pkgsrc knows what the appropriate CFLAGS and LIBS values for every of the required libraries are based on the various BUILDLINK_* variables. You can easily feed those into configure to avoid the calls to pkg-config, and thus suppress the circular dependency.
