libgdiplus build error

Hello, I am trying to compile libgdiplus and I am getting the following error:
/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=link gcc  -g -O2 -pthread   -o testgdi testgdi.o ../src/ -lpthread -lfontconfig 
libtool: link: gcc -g -O2 -pthread -o .libs/testgdi testgdi.o  ../src/.libs/ -lpthread /usr/lib64/ -pthread -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.7.1/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: testgdi.o: undefined reference to symbol 'g_free'
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.7.1/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: note: 'g_free' is defined in DSO /usr/lib64/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/lib64/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [testgdi] Error 1
I am using the correspondent slackbuild from
I tried to build this in Slackware64-current.

Any ideas?
