Based on that then it would seem there is a problem with the installed
version of gcc finding the files. Since my original post I now know that
the version of gcc being used is in /usr/bin which suggests this comes
with the Xcode tools and is not one of the gcc ports from MP? I've also
discovered the apple-gcc42 port (which has compiled and installed

Is it possible to configure MP to use a different gcc version somewhere
to see if glib2 will compile?
