Compiled en installed new Glib but Pango won't find it

I compiled and installed glib-2.4.0. Now I'm trying to ./configure pango but it says:

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.4.0, but GLIB (2.2.3)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
configure: error:
*** Glib 2.4.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from
$PKG_CONFIG_PATH already points to the right pkgconfig dir. How can I make it detect the new Glib?

completely erase every glib you have, then install the new one, this should fix it
