I'm trying to install glib 2.8.3 (I do not think it is 
too much different from 2.8.5). I have little-endian mips 
architecture (mipsel) and am installing the library on 
the RedHat Linux with core 2.4 (both on a target and on a 
host).
I'm using the following parameters with configure:
./configure --prefix=<path> --build=mipsel-linux --
host=i686-linux --with-libiconv=gnu

Do you have you gtk/glib compiled from the sources on 
your machine or just a binaries installed? Do you have 
a ./glib/gatomic.c file compiled? I do not quite 
understand how that can be (I could not see there a 
section for MIPS/MIPSEL). Also, do you have any of the 
G_ATOMIC_<platform> macros defined in the config.h file?

With respect,
Oleg Kruzhkov
