Unfortunately compiling GLib from scratch (e.g., on Haiku) can be a lot of

Interesting, I haven't found much on eglib except the github repo which says:

"The purpose of eglib is to be an X11-licensed subset of glib that can
be used with Mono when the Mono runtime is explicitly relicensed under
a different license by Novell."

If that's the main reason to create the library, then I'm happy to
stick with glib.

I don't think so. That licensing issue was probably related to some game platform... certainly no reason to abondon LGPL, given the proximity to the GNOME community.

I believe there used to be no ppc64 and Win64 support in vanilla GLib (haven't checked ppc for a long time though). The e was supposed to be for embedded, i.e. for code size reduction - it's linked statically into Mono.

Just cautioning that GLib is really great when you have the packages on YourFavorite distro, but it can be a pain to deal with in some corner cases.
