Really you could have just looked at
http://www.gtk.org for that one ... or read
the slackware package descriptions, for
that matter ...


Cheers,

Glib and GTK are libraries. Glib is more low-level and allows programmmer to do many things in an easier way (short tutorial here: http://www.gtk.org/tutorial/ch-glib.html). GTK is graphical library - it's used to draw windows etc in GNOME.
The two are needed by many programs and they won't run without them. If you're not a programmer, however, you don't use them directly.

If you installed Slack (and KDE for that matter) from CD
you will find both glib and gtk on those CD's as well.

You need to have glib and gtk packages (with their -devels), so check if you have glib, glib-devel, gtk, gtk-devel. Then the compilation should go.
