Audacious does not compile with GLIB < 2.36
After some time, I did a checkout of the latest sources of Audacious and I tried to build them.
During the process, it stopped with an error into src/audacious/main.cc, saying that g_type_init() was undeclared in the current context. In that source, I fixed the trouble by adding:
#if ! GLIB_CHECK_VERSION (2, 36, 0)
immediately after the inclusion of glib.h, since the main() function handled it in a similar way.
The compilation completed successfully, but later it halted again during the link because the symbol _g_type_init was not found.
I was able to overcome it by temporally hacking the Makefile, by adding "-lgobject-2.0" to the libs.
Probably, the configure script has to query the presence of the gobject module with pkgconfig and add its cflags and libs.
Only the stuff inside src/audacious required this fix.

Well, we cannot get rid of GObject completely in core since the D-Bus support needs it. But we don't build against GObject if --disable-dbus is used, so we shouldn't be calling g_type_init() in that case either.
