roseway has packaged the latest libGlade release for VL 5.8, and it is up for testing:
libglade: libglade (library to load glade interface files)
libglade: This library allows you to load glade interface files
libglade: in a program at runtime. It doesn't require GLADE to
libglade: be used, but GLADE is by far the easiest way to create
libglade: the interface files.
