No, 1.2.10 is the older version, and is only needed if
you're installing older software that requires it. Most
newer packages will use a 2.x version of glib, and the same
applies to gtk+.

In my case, the only reason I have it installed is for the
Loki installer used by a number of games - everything else I
need uses glib/gtk 2.x
