Hey, I'm fine with having glib2 in core. It's a decent library after all.

I'm all for the simplest solution to this, because it's really a minor
issue in the grand scheme. To me, it looks like the simplest solution
is to just include it in the repo. It's not a huge deal, it IS only a
makedepend anyway.
