Perhaps you did not set LD_LIBRARY_PATH? On Ubuntu I use these steps:

$ cd ~/packages/gtk/glib-2.46.1
$ CFLAGS=-g ./configure
$ make
$ make install

This will install glib to /usr/local. Now make a test program:

$ cd
$ more test.c
#include <glib.h>

main( int argc, char **argv )
    GHashTable *table = g_hash_table_new( g_str_hash, g_str_equal );

    return( 0 );

Now compile it. You need to make sure pkg-config is seeing your new
home-made glib:

$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
$ pkg-config glib-2.0 --cflags
-I/usr/local/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/local/lib/glib-2.0/include

Yes, it is seeing the new one in /usr/local. Now compile:

$ gcc test.c `pkg-config glib-2.0 --cflags --libs`

At run-time it will pick up the system glib library. You need to set
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make it use your new one.

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
$ ldd a.out | grep glib
    libglib-2.0.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 (0x00007fde5dd6b000)

Now run it.
