Re: none

(I hope the ridiculous To: line content was an error and not some
intentional spam-fighting thing, but I've pruned it.  Color me amused by
UUCP, which I used to get mail on 7th Edition.)

Look in devel/glib2/patches to make sure that you have patch-glib_genviron.c 
It's from December 29.

Run "make MAKE_JOBS=1 package" with stdout/stderr saved to a file, and
look over the contents for errors, such as the above patch not applying.
MAKE_JOBS=1 is just to avoid parallel builds because they can cause
trouble and even if not they make reading build logs harder.

After that, I can only suggest

  - debugging the weak symbol linking issues directly

  - seeing if unmodified glib2 will build not via pkgsrc, and if it
    doesn't, addressing that with the glib2 project

  - looking at the FreeBSD ports tree entry to see if it handles this
