Yes, I have them installed. This is a compilation example from 
shared-mime-info version 0.15

/if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.     -I/usr/include/libxml2 
-I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include   -MT 
update-mime-database.o -MD.deps/update-mime-database.Tpo" -c -o 
update-mime-database.o update-mime-database.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/update-mime-database.Tpo" 
".deps/update-mime-database.Po"; else rm -f 
".deps/update-mime-database.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
gcc  -I/usr/include/libxml2 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 
-I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include    -lxml2 -lpthread -lz -lm -lglib-2.0   -o 
update-mime-database  ue-database.o/

if I use the above make statement to compile the CVS version, the 
compilation will succeed.

I can see that the update_mime_database_CFLAGS variable is not added to 
the COMPILE line

/update_mime_database_CFLAGS// = $(ALL_CFLAGS)//
CFLAGS = -g -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes 

I added the variable and it compiled fine
