This smells like a needless and unnecessary bug:

Yes, overrides, but you claimed no (well strangely) %configure w/o

glib not building w/o redhat-rpm-config installed means something else
is broke. There is no reason for that dependency imho, smells more
like a bug to me.

Could someone give me a build log with the failure? Is this glib
or glib2?

log of failed glib build

On other systems, one of the first things the %configure macro does is copy
config.guess and config.sub files to the build directory. That doesn't happen
here. Then it is decided that libtool doesn't support shared libraries, and
thus no shared libs are built.

Please try to reproduce this against a supported release and reopen if you can.
