Then you need to sort out the path locations for this location - GnuCash is 
doing what it can to find the correct library but is only finding the old

If you can't uninstall, you must redirect. The location of this problem is not 
in the src/ directory or anywhere beneath it - you need to sort out your 
filesystem paths so that is able to find the correct libraries:

Check config.log for what's gone wrong.

configure:11635: checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0
configure:11754: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -pthread -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 
-I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include     conftest.c -pthread -lgthread-2.0 
-lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0    >&5
configure:11757: $? = 0

and config.status:
s, at GLIB_CFLAGS@,-pthread -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 
-I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include  ,;t t
s, at GLIB_LIBS@,-pthread -lgthread-2.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0  ,;t t

What do you get with
$ pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0
