checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0... no

I'm trying to install a software, and -when configure- it doesn't find GLIB:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...

But if I try to install it via YUM:
[]# yum install glib
glib is installed and is the latest version.
No actions to take

Any suggestion?

If you know the version it is looking then sym link that name to the version you have. This should fool it into submission.
