Sorry this is a very late reply, however it still is an issue with fink/Mac OS X so I figured I'd post the workaround for future use.

Fink (as of 10/28/2008) doesn't patch glib2 to get around a change in new GCC and Leopard, which causes duplicate symbols (such as _g_bit_nth_lsf) when compiling certain things. To get around this, apply the MacPorts patch ( I found the easiest way to do this is to just edit the glib.h after it is installed (/sw/include/glib-2.0/glib/glib.h) and add the two lines at line 99:

#elif defined (__APPLE__) && !defined(GLIB_COMPILATION) && !defined(GOBJECT_COMPILATION)
#  define G_INLINE_FUNC inline

First, installing packages through Fink doesn't automatically work; I
had to specify GTK_LIBS in the environment to allow the configure
script to find them. Second, when I try running make, I get the
following error (cropped for space):

Someone posted that they couldn't replicate the error by installing
dependencies through MacPorts, which I've tried. But if I try to
install gtk2, it hangs on the activation and never finishes.

Has anyone found a solution to this?
