glib-2.0.dll is going to be the same thing as libglib-2.0.0.dll
compiled differently.  Try using dependency walker to figure out what
exactly is looking for it (it shouldn't be libpurple or any of the
other deps).

How did you link glib into the app that you're using libpurple for?
Did you build it with MSVC?

I'm curious what exactly you're making.
