Why not use an invisible grace note to start the glissando? Then, there's no need to fiddle with the timing:

\transpose c c'{
\grace{ \hideNotes g,8\glissando \unHideNotes} c'4  c'4 c'4 r4 |
\grace{\hideNotes c''8\glissando \unHideNotes} c'4  c'4 c'4 r4 |
a1\fermata \grace{\hideNotes d'4\glissando \unHideNotes }|
ees8->[ c8]-> r4 r2 |

Well, to answer my own question, the hidden grace note will be so close to the following note, that the resulting glissando might look too short. One possible workaround is to include more hidden notes (or spacer notes) in the \grace{...}:
\grace{ \hideNotes g,8\glissando s s \unHideNotes} c'4  c'4 c'4 r4 |

A judicious use of time distortion may help you here.

\transpose c c'{
 \hideNotes g,32\glissando \unHideNotes c'4*7/8  c'4 c'4 r4 |
 \hideNotes c''32\glissando \unHideNotes c'4*7/8  c'4 c'4 r4 |
 a1*3/4\fermata \hideNotes d'4\glissando \unHideNotes |
 ees8->[ c8]-> r4 r2 |

And then patiently adjust padding and minimum-length ...
