Building gtk2 and linking against glib

Hi all,

I am currently writing a package manager that builds from source (for
purposes of cross-compilation). I am trying to get gtk2 to build.
Currently it is failing on gtk2's configure step because I am trying to
link against a locally installed version of glib, viz.

configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.28.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/.

I have GLIB 2.58.1 installed locally and GLIB 2.56.3 installed via my
distro. Is there any nice flag I can pass to the configure script to
make it ignore the error and prefer the locally installed library?
