In many packages we use “wrap-program” (and in a few we use
“wrap-script”) to create a shell script that sets environment variables
and then calls the actual program.

The Thunar executable could perhaps be wrapped with a shell script that
first sets the PATH environment variable to a value that includes the
“bin” directory of the “glib” package’s “bin” output.  The result is
that Thunar will be able to find gio-launch-desktop in the PATH.
