Checking Solaris and SUSE Linux, I see a similar pair of directories:

solaris$ pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0
-I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include

linux$ pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0 
-I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib64/glib-2.0/include

The /usr/lib* directory on each system contains a single file: glibconfig.h. 
On FreeBSD, this file is in /usr/local/include/glib-2.0/ along with all the
other headers (headers don't belong in /lib/ anyway).

Try putting the attached patch into the files directory of the glib20 port.

No headers are installed into ${libdir}/glib-2.0/include, so remove it from
