I don't see why it should require glib to be in your $PATH per se, perhaps
there's something in the docs? However, if glib has been installed and the
compile isn't finding it, I'd suggest you edit your /etc/ld.so.conf and check
to see if the libs directory into which glib has installed is listed. If
not add it, and run /sbin/ldconfig -v. In fact, even if it is listed,
running ldconfig won't hurt anyway.
Then retry your compile and see if it makes any difference.
Another possibility is something I came across recently (damned if I can
remember the app though) where a successful compile depended on me having
unarchived zlib into a parallel directory. I had to temporarily change the
$PATH to get it to see zlib.
Anyway, good luck.
