I believe you mentioned that you are using SuSE 9.0 now?  I don't 
remember what versions of glib & glib2 came with that now.  I know a 
version 2.x, but don't remember the exact version without looking on my 
discs.  Anyway, SuSE does have update files on their ftp to bring 
things up to 2.4 for glib2 at least.  Since glib pertains to gtk and 
glib2 to the new gtk+, which I believe Gimp has also been updated to 
use, I'm pretty sure you won't find a 2.3 version of glib to use.  
Usually your odd versions are developer versions anyway.  Be sure too, 
that you have all the -devel packages installed for compiling.

I don't know how much you have been mucking around with your setup, but 
it sounds as if you might have gotten things wanky.  You could always 
do a repair from your SuSE discs, to put things back or you could 
update to 9.1 and get Gimp 2.x in the process.  ;o)

You can also download the Gnome files from their ftp for 9.0 and 
probably settle things down too, if you are wanting to compile the 
newer version.  One other thing, I believe in one of the mails, someone 
mentioned glibc.  glibc is one of those things one should not mess with 
on their setup as it provides the base for all Linux.  It is extremely 
fragile and updating or changing things are a bad idea.  That's not to 
say one can't do it, but due to the nature of it's existence, it's 
recommended strongly not too!
