What version of glib2 is installed and active? Many older versions
may well be installed if you've done many upgrades in the past, but
only one is active. Try:
port installed glib2
The current version of glib2 is 2.16.5 which should satisfy the
dependency. If somehow you have an older version than that installed
and active, then:
sudo port upgrade glib2
Or attach the aforementioned config.log so we can see what's going
